Rally for Life 2021

Louisville’s Metro Hall where the statue of Thomas Jefferson stands, is the perfect place for a Right to Life Rally. The words of the Declaration of Independence, written by Jefferson (edited by other men), are engraved and gilded on the statue pedestal:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Come peacefully protest abortion in our city! Exercise your First Amendment Right.

RTL staff members will be introduced— some you may have never met! Join us for a Resounding Rally! Be a voice for the voiceless — cheering for Life!

This is a outdoor rally. Please follow COVID19 safety rules.

Hardcore Pro-lifers brave freezing temps to rally for life!

About 105 including children made the scene

Did you know that Right to Life of Louisville began in 1970? Even before Roe. v. Wade became law?

Read about our founding and see historic pictures and newspaper clippings on the Rally Announcement.

Wonderful talks were presented by Attorney Bob Heleringer, Councilman Robin Engel, Sisters for Life member Aundria McClain, and Margie Montgomery. Josette Goulet, former Louisville RTL board member, gave the opening prayer, and Pastor Mark Hancher of Hikes Point Christian Church ended the Rally with encouraging words and prayer. Dennis Corley coordinated the special event.

Sincerest thanks to ALL who turned out! We learned from Councilman Engel that the Metro Council may again debate a safety zone around the EMW clinic. He noted this would be an abridgement of our civil rights. Vigilance is the key to pro-life progress, which IS being made!

Margie Montgomery was quoted in the C-J which covered the Rally:

Despite the election of Gov. Andy Beshear, who supports abortion rights, Montgomery said that "the momentum is clearly on our side." She pointed to a House bill with nearly 30 co-sponsors that would amend the Kentucky Constitution to say that it does not "secure or protect a right to abortion or require the funding of abortion."
