Today, the KRLA PAC issued an endorsement of Gov. Matt Bevin for re-election to our state’s highest office.

Dear Governor:

Last week, National Right to Life Committee, Inc., the federation to which Kentucky Right to Life belongs, was pleased to endorse you for reelection as governor. The fact that NRLC made an endorsement in your statewide race is a testament to your unapologetic pro-life convictions, your effectiveness in administrative matters that resulted in the closure of a Lexington abortion clinic, your willingness to sign pro-life legislation into law, and your defense of such legislation against judicial challenges.

Kentucky Right to Life PAC is happy to echo the endorsement of its national federation. We heartily endorse you for governor. It is doubtful that we could find any candidate more suitable or more deserving of pro-life support.

Thank you for everything you have done in your first term; we look forward to working with you in a second term. We will ask all our pro-life friends to lend their support to your election this November.

Wishing you success,

Margie Montgomery, Executive Director, KRLA

David M. Bauscher, Coordinator, KRLA PAC

Kentucky’s Dismemberment Abortion law that passed during the spring 2018 legislative session was blocked by the ACLU on behalf of the EMW Clinic. Background on case is here.

A bench trial to litigate the suit took place last November, and the May 2019 verdict was favorable to the EMW. The Bevin Administration appealed the case to the Federal Appeals Court in Cincinnati.

During the November trial in Louisville, the ACLU attorneys argued that Dilation & Evacuation (dismemberment) surgical abortion was the safest method. The state argued that digoxin, a drug that can be injected into the fetus to humanely end its life without pain, is also the safest method for the woman. D&E abortion requires many passes into the woman’s birth canal to grab and tear apart the limbs and torso of the live fetus.

Last week during the ‘historic criminal preliminary hearing’ for David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt regarding their investigative work that led to publishing YouTube videos to expose the sale of baby body parts, one doctor has testified that “didged babies delivered after days lying dead in the womb weren’t suitable [for baby parts].” This obviously can lead to testimony that procedures were altered to gain parts.

As well, the CEO of StemExpress admitted in court Thursday that her biotech company supplies beating fetal hearts and intact fetal heads to medical researchers. She had admitted at the preliminary hearing that the baby’s head could be procured attached to the baby’s body or “could be torn away.”

The videos that expose StemExpress are still on the CMP YouTube channel (one is below). Links to all the PP videos that had been removed for a time are provided in this LifeNews article.

Update 8-22-19: C-J's Deborah Yetter reports:

[In a motion on Wed., Aug. 21] Planned Parenthood is asking a federal judge to hold Gov. Matt Bevin and top state health officials in contempt of court over what it alleges are repeated violations of court orders regarding its effort to get a license to provide abortions in Louisville…

“It is clear," the motion said, "that the defendants are engaging in self-help by ignoring this court's orders in hopes of a win on appeal in the sixth circuit.”

Wednesday's motion is the second time Planned Parenthood has asked the court to hold the Bevin administration in contempt over its long-running battle to get the license. Read more

It seems obvious that Kentucky would engage in self-help by appealing the case to the Sixth District Court of Appeals after losing it in the lower court. That is standard procedure, so how could it be viewed as ‘contempt’?


The C-J reports:

The Bevin administration is once again blocking Planned Parenthood from having a license to operate an abortion clinic at its building in downtown Louisville… Planned Parenthood announced the decision in a release late Friday night…
