UPDATE on 5-28-2020 — National Right to Life Endorses Mitch McConnell

TODAY May 26, 2020 is the last day you can register to vote in the June 23 Primary. Go here no later than 4 PM.

Still at home? Not sure about venturing out yet? We all can vote, and it is TIME to get an absentee ballot. It’s T - 28 to the Primary! Go here to see your ballot.

Go here to request an application for an absentee ballot or call your County Clerk’s office to request an application.

Some states simply mailed all registered voters an application, but Kentucky expects registered voters to ask for an application, which is MUCH SAFER. Thank you, Secretary of State Michael Adams!

When you receive your application, fill it out and mail it in; then, you will be mailed a ballot, and you can either mail it in, trusting the USPS, or hand-deliver it to your Voter Center.

In Jefferson Co., there will be only ONE in-person voting location on June 23, the Kentucky Exposition Center at the Fairgrounds. Parking will be free. You can also contact your county clerk to ask about voting in-person at their office or voting center prior to June 23. In Jefferson Co. this location is: 701 W. Ormsby Ave., Ste 301 (40203-3143). The phone is: 502.574.5700.

IMPORTANT: Attention District 26 (40205, 40207, 40222, 40241, 40014, 40010, 40026, 40031, 40055, 40056, 40059, 40068, 40077— Louisville, Westport, Pendleton, LaGrange, Goshen, Buckner, Crestwood, Prospect, Smithfield, Peewee Valley (in some cases, parts of these zips & cities) —YOU ONLY HAVE ONE CHANCE TO VOTE for a new State Senator, and there is only ONE pro-life candidate: Bill Ferko. Visit Mr. Ferko’s Facebook page and website. Whether you are Republican, a pro-life Democrat or an Independent, you can request a ballot and VOTE for Bill Ferko!

Please refer to the KRLA PAC Voter Guide for endorsements for all races.

The National Right to Life has approved all of the KRLA PAC’s endorsements. We made a revision on May 22 to add that Todd McMurtry who is running against Thomas Massie has contributed to pro-abortion candidates. Our endorsements or mentions are based on facts which we take a lot of time to research, and we verify the actual record of each candidate.

If you will place a sign for Mr. Ferko in your yard, email Schu Montgomery.

Two online Summits were held earlier this month and both featured Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., whose Children’s Health Defense movement targets ‘big pharma.’ RFK was 14 when his father was assassinated during his run for president in 1968 after serving as JFK's Attorney General.

Robert Kennedy has primarily worked as an environmental lawyer. His litigation in mercury contamination attracted the interest of parents whose children were harmed by vaccines with mercury adjutants, and on hearing their stories he stepped up to litigate for them.

There is much written about this on the internet, and because of his name recognition and passion for the cause, a lot of progress has been made in exposing vaccine dangers.

The Summits featured several interviews of special interest to pro-lifers. One, “Aborted Fetal Cell Use and Religious Exemption,” provided background on how the cell lines from aborted fetuses (who were alive when their cells were extracted) are still being used to produce vaccinations for babies and children. When the distinct DNA of aborted humans is merged into the cells of the vaccinated children, devastating health consequences frequently result. An example cited is the incidence of autism in the USA, currently 1 in 54 according to the CDC, but other sources report even more. The featured interviewee Marcella Piper-Terry has a YouTube video of an interview on the Today Show describing her personal experience with vaccinations for her children, but the conference videos are pay-for-play.

Another session, “Mandatory Vaccinations vs. Religious & Parental Rights,” offered a political activism slant on this conscience rights issue by KrisAnne Hall, a constitutional attorney.

The second topic for pro-lifers centered on Stem Cell research. Theresa Deisher, Ph.D., was interviewed by media expert Del Bigtree about her work. She was the first to identify and patent the adult stem cell, and sued the HSS and NIH for permitting the use of embryonic stem cells in research because they are known to cause tumors. There is much information on this online.

Dr. Deisher has been an innovator in pro-life branding of consumer products and has her own biotech firm, AVM Biotech, which is at the forefront of pro-life, safe vaccines and treatments.

The debates about current work on COVID-19 vaccines were part of the virtual conferences. For more information on these issues, see the Health Summit website, the Truth about Vaccines site, the Children’s Health Defense site, and the Children of God for Life site that has articles on COVID-19 and pro-life treatment and warns about the use of aborted fetal cells in COVID-19 Moderna vaccine.

Election news is troubling. Only one polling place for the Primary in Jefferson Co.? Will “faithless” electors in the Electoral College skew the real results in November?

These are only a few of the concerns facing Kentuckians as we head toward the June 23 Primary and November elections. And it has never been more important for pro-lifers to vote and to help “get out the vote”!

You can request a ballot by filling out an online application on your County Clerk website. In Jefferson Co. one would select the last reason for requesting an absentee ballot, “Medical Emergency {COVID-19} (R)”.

You should then receive a message that your request has been received, however, we did not find that to be true. Perhaps the web technologies involved are not yet functional. Let’s be vigilant, and be sure to vote!

Pushing the envelope or pushing the coat hanger?

SPECIAL for ObGyn Physicians

May 7, 2020 | Eau Claire, Mich. | Donna J. Harrison M.D., Executive Director

When we think of someone who sells drugs to a buyer, knowing that drug will result in an ER visit for nearly one out of 20 buyers and surgery for almost that many, we generally think of illegal drug dealers. Think again. The new drug dealers are pushing do-it-yourself abortion with Mifeprex and Misoprostol. Why?

The abortion industry has two significant problems:

  1. Most doctors don't want to do abortions. Roughly 3/4 of ob-gyns will not perform abortions. The doctors that do perform abortions are aging out of practice.
  2. Medical standard of care practice requirements like informed consent, at-minimum 24-hour waiting periods, hospital privileges, procedure rooms adequately sterilized and stocked with resuscitative equipment, trained anesthetists and other standards of medical care practice that the rest of us comprehend as essential to patient safety, the abortion industry disdains as "preventing access." The real complaint, however, is "cuts into our bottom line profit margin."

The COVID-19 epidemic has brought the primary, financial objective of the abortion industry into sharp focus: to abort as many women as possible in as little time as possible, with as little follow up as possible. Abortion clinics have flouted requirements to cancel elective surgeries, now claiming preposterously that instead of a "choice," elective abortion is essential medical care. Abortion clinics cancel pelvic exams, pap smears, other cancer screenings and STI screenings; they flout state laws by refusing to report pregnancies in cases of statutory rape, refusing to obtain state-mandated parental or legal guardian consent and ignoring COVID-19 abortion bans. But you can't have it both ways… essential medical care requires complying with medical standards of care, which the abortion industry refuses to do because money for abortion is their bottom line.

National Right to Life reports in its May magazine that the term “surgical abortion” is being replaced with “procedural abortion.” Newspeak is an especially fierce battlefront of the culture war.

The NRLC story refers to a Rewire.News article, published last month, stating:

Rewire.News has updated its style guide to more accurately describe abortion care. Instead of referring to “medication and surgical” abortion to distinguish between abortions induced by pills and abortions performed as an in-clinic procedure, Rewire.News will use “medication and procedural” abortion.

The article explains that for pregnancies in the first trimester (up to 12 weeks) the procedure is a five to 10 minute process “involving gentle suction to remove the products of conception,” and it does not typically require cutting or suturing of any kind. To see an abortion of a 12-week old pre-born baby, see Dr. Bernard Nathanson’s video, The Silent Scream. There are surgical aspects.

Numerous metal instruments are inserted into the woman to achieve the abortion. Tissue must be cut— the amniotic sac in which the baby lives has to be torn open so that the suction tube can vacuum out his or her body parts (— at 12 weeks we know whether it’s a boy or girl). A polyp forceps must be inserted to crush the head before the skull bones and brains can be sucked out. So, by definition, even early stage abortion is surgery. (See the AMA definition of surgery.)

The article quotes healthcare providers who are irked when they are accused of using “a whole bunch of critical medical supplies and take PPE [personal protective equipment] away from the hospital” during the pandemic.

faceshield.jpgAfter all, they say, a first-trimester abortion only requires “2 pairs of gloves (1 for the ultrasound and 1 for the procedure) and a reusable face shield. A gown and mask are not usually required… If a person is forced to carry their pregnancy to term, their cesarean section would require significantly more PPE…” (We have inserted pictures of face shields in case readers may be wondering how they differ from masks.)

Now you know. Clinic personnel will not be wearing face masks for surgical abortions. We wonder— Do they require the patients do so?

Sincere thanks to the sidewalk counselors who have consistently stood nearby the women entering the EMW clinic despite the pandemic. A wonderful description of what is going on there, written by Ed Harpring, the Pro-Life Coordinator for the Archdiocese of Louisville, can be read on Facebook.
