2019 Kentucky Legislature

The Kentucky Legislature has a Pro-Life Caucus! View all its members here.

Four bills were presented by the Pro-life Caucus members on Jan. 10 at a press conference in the Capitol Rotunda:

  • SB 9 - The “Heartbeat” bill - no abortion after detection of a heartbeat.
  • SB 50 - Abortion Pill Reporting Requirements - require a report of dispensing a prescription for RU-486 …or any other drug …intended to end a pregnancy to the Vital Statistics Branch within 15 days after the end of the month.
  • HB 5 - No abortion for discriminatory reasons - based on sex, race, color, national origin, or disability.
  • HB 148 - Ends abortion - if and when Roe v. Wade is overturned by SCOTUS or states are once again authorized to prohibit abortion.

Along with educating, electing strong pro-life leaders, promoting adoption and medical research that does not rely on killing innocent human life, KRLA pursues an aggressive pro-life legislative effort to pass laws that protect innocent human life. We do so because pro-life laws shields those who cannot speak for themselves and their mothers, and because the law is a teacher. To that end, we strongly support pro-life federal legislation and we at times employ lobbyists to work for pro-life legislation in Kentucky.
