Attention All Right to Lifers!
We are collecting e-mail addresses and taking a survey for our fall Walk For Life in Louisville. Especially during the coronavirus pandemic, we want to make sure people feel safe planning for a walk this fall.
We believe we can and should hold a Walk For Life this fall. We just want to make sure fellow pro-lifers will show up! Fill out the survey. Thanks!

Ever wonder what to DO to affect or even to STOP the societal events that are tearing down our constitution and our prospect for freedom in the USA?
When you are actively pro-life, you ARE doing something. You are providing an important service by holding the line against the easy acceptance of abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, assisted suicide and experimentation or processes that use embryonic stem cells or fetal cells.
You are fighting for conscience rights, no taxpayer funding for abortion, no webcam abortions, and other important territories in the culture war.
AND, YOU ALREADY HAVE done a lot of IMPORTANT WORK for Kentucky to live and breathe a pro-life ethic— you “flipped the House” in 2016, and today we have a pro-life majority both in our Senate and House of Representatives. Both of our U.S. Senators are pro-life, and only one U.S. Representative is pro-abortion.
Just yesterday, Planned Parenthood endorsed Joe Biden for President. PP’s acting president stated, "This is literally a life and death election.” Is she kidding? To say, They know not whereof they speak, is underneath an understatement.
So, keep up the great work! Your vote COUNTS and makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE for our state and our nation. Click here for information about polling locations. Though a number of races are uncontested in the Primary, there are IMPORTANT votes to cast— and YOUR VOTE IS VERY IMPORTANT.
Our Attorney General encourages us to report suspected election law violations!

Pro-lifers in Kentucky currently await a number of important court rulings:
- The Supreme Court will soon rule on the Louisiana June Medical Services case. Its decision could require abortion clinic doctors to have admitting privileges to a nearby hospital, leading to many clinic closings in the nation. In Louisville two doctors (of whom we are aware) at the EMW clinic do have hospital admitting privileges but this is not the same as a Transfer Agreement.
- The Transfer Agreement lawsuit awaits a decision from the Sixth Circuit Appeals Court. It is possible that the above-mentioned SCOTUS ruling will affect that case. However, as brought out by Kentucky’s attorneys during the trial and appeal, the critical aspect of such agreements is the “protocol for transferring medical records.” Since two of the judges on the Appeals panel were appointed by President Trump, we hope for a fair and just decision.
- The Heartbeat and Anti-eugenics laws, rolled into one during the litigation, await the decision of the Sixth Circuit Appeals Court on an Ohio case, “Preterm-Cleveland v. Himes,” that will determine the fate of Down Syndrome babies and the outcome of the Kentucky litigation.
- The Dismemberment Abortion law appeal was decided in favor of the EMW and ACLU, however, AG Cameron will be making a decision soon on whether to request an “en banc” (full Appeals Court) hearing or to instead appeal the case to SCOTUS.
Presently, pro-lifers are striving to prevent the overturn of safety precautions for women who elect medical abortions. Attorney General Cameron has added Kentucky as an “Intervenor State” to an Amicus brief in defense of in-person dispensing of the “abortion pill” by a doctor for the protection of the woman seeking the abortion. The political association for ObGyns, ACOG, wants the FDA to drop their regulations that ensure a drug’s benefits outweigh its risks. The pro-life ObGyns have exposed this.
Let's all pray.
As of 12:30 PM last Tuesday, 100,000 Kentuckians had applied online on the GoVoteKy.com web page to get an absentee ballot. This progress was celebrated by SOS Michael Adams (tongue-in-cheek?): “Voting absentee is easy, secure and wildly popular,” Adams said. “I’m grateful to the Kentuckians who understand that we have fewer voting locations available and fewer poll workers available because of COVID-19 – not only are these Kentuckians being good citizens by voting, but by voting absentee they’re being good citizens in relieving the pressure on our voting locations and our poll workers.” (ref)
Considering that Gov. Beshear has said that all registered voters need to use absentee ballots, 100,000 is not a significant number. In the 2016 Primary Election, 669,668 Kentuckians voted, which was only 20.6% of all registered voters.
It’s a dismal situation.
Is your state or U.S. representative or your state senator pro-life? Thankfully, both Ky U.S. Senators are. If you have never experienced having pro-abortion public servants, you have no idea what you are missing.
People tell you to contact your Ky. representative or senator about important pro-life legislation. You know it will be a wasted effort. People ask you to PLEASE contact your U.S. Congressman‐ who will be deaf to any pro-life pleading. Another wasted effort. Why bother?
Attention District 26 pro-lifers: This fate could be yours if Republican Bill Ferko loses in the Special Election for a new senator. The Primary is the only election featuring this race.
And did you know that some Republicans who are running against KRLA PAC-endorsed incumbents are NOT pro-life? Consider Andy Barr, District 6 Congressman, who is opposed by Chuck Eddy– the founder of Republicans for Andy Beshear and Jacqueline Coleman, 2019.
Barr is also running against Republican Geoff Young who states on his campaign site, “Planned Parenthood is implementing a moral, effective, and objectively pro-life strategy that would reduce the number of abortions (or murders) that would occur in Kentucky and the United States. Planned Parenthood also provides critically important health services to millions of women every ye… I pledge to support Planned Parenthood and will work to reverse every misguided federal law ‘Right-To-Life’ movement has ever gotten enacted. Why? Because all of these unnecessary laws tend to increase, not decrease, the abortion rate.”
One endorsed incumbent Republican is running against a man who has pro-life views but has contributed to pro-abortion candidates. Refer to the KRLA PAC. It’s important to vote in the Primary! June 15 is the last day you can request an application for an absentee ballot.
New ideas are always emerging in the pro-life activists’ realm. One idea recently heard was that those protesting at abortion clinics ought to carry signs telling the moms-to-be that they are carrying a little goldmine: “STOP! The liver of your fetus is worth $750! Contact us at [phone].” The activist could take the conversation from there.
This, of course, was not a serious suggestion.
However, if hearing a heartbeat (at six weeks) during an ultrasound does not register with the pregnant lady, maybe losing $750 would capture her attention. Women want to know when others are taking advantage of them.
During the recent trial to convict David Daleiden and others with the Center for Medical Progress who exposed the Planned Parenthood baby body parts scandal, that dollar amount for a liver was noted in testimony:
One particularly incriminating exchange was during the video testimony of Tram Nguyen, Abortion Center Administrator for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast (PPGC). She was asked by defense counsel about an e-mail stream between her and the Regional Medical and Surgical Services Director of PPGC.
Nguyen agreed in that e-mail exchange that she wanted to move forward with an attached contract that would have paid PPGC $750.00 per fetal liver and $1,600.00 per fetal liver/thymus pair.
And be aware—
… In December 2017, two California companies, DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, admitted guilt and agreed to pay nearly $8 million to settle a civil case brought by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office for illegally trafficking in aborted baby tissues and organs procured exclusively from Southern California Planned Parenthood abortion facilities. The two companies were also ordered to shut down, but in a miscarriage of justice, Planned Parenthood escaped prosecution.
So, because it is unlikely that PP will explain to the abortion patient how the body parts of her baby may be worth a lot of money, pro-lifers could do so. The women need to understand who PP is.
Planned Parenthood does save people’s futures. Those are the facts of Hittman’s film, but they are also the facts of life in the United States. Even worse, since the coronavirus crisis began, several states have deemed abortion to be a “nonessential” medical procedure and ordered that all planned terminations be delayed, apparently ignoring the fact that pregnancy waits for no man.
Those real-world stakes make the film harder to interpret as a piece of fiction, since, on the one hand, its delicate cinematography is inevitably overshadowed by the towering political issues at play. One leaves the movie shattered with gratitude toward Planned Parenthood and the people who work there, and disoriented with rage toward almost everybody else.
The crisis pregnancy center in the film is cast as as ‘religious propaganda station.’
The movie went online last week (pay for play) with rave reviews from the usual suspects— The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Associated Press and others.
The heroine must endure the Christian at the crisis center who performs the ultrasound, saying, This is the most magical sound you will ever hear, regarding the fetal heartbeat. She tears up, very slightly. Perhaps it saddens her, but her own choice is the dominant voice in her conscience.
With the courts, the media, the entertainment industry, the large corporations, the universities and schools and even many churches supporting that choice, what could help her to change her mind? Well, maybe she would get mad enough to, if she thought someone was about to ‘make a killing’ from her product of conception.
And furthermore, the movie reviewer was wrong about COVID-19 proving that abortion is essential since the woman must be aborted as early as possible — to avoid complications? Hmm. At 22 weeks, the brain is worth $999, so from a practical standpoint, COVID-19 is preventing medical research— and more profits for abortion clinics that traffic in parts.
Surely, we want to believe, such trafficking no longer takes place. More on this in a future post.
