UPDATE on January 23, 2020
Hardcore pro-lifers braved the freezing temps to Rally for Life! See the slideshow.
The Louisville chapter of KRLA was Kentucky’s first. Does anyone recall its first office building on Willis Ave. in St. Matthews?
The group has staged a January 22nd Rally (over too many years to count) to commemorate the lives lost since the 1973 Roe v. Wade legal decision. These now number 61+ million.
This year the Rally will also mark the chapter’s golden anniversary. All are invited! Speakers include Attorney Bob Heleringer, Metro Councilman Robin Engel, Aundria McClain, Sisters for Life, and Margie Montgomery, founder and executive director of Louisville RTL and KRLA.
A special flyer was created to feature photos and news clips from the past. The flyer reports on the earliest days of the Louisville voice for the voiceless, and provides background on how Roe v. Wade became law despite the states’ opposition to abortion on demand.
Click here for the flyer and all the details. Why not download the flyer and send it to friends? We hope to see a huge crowd at the 2020 Rally!
UPDATE on January 16, 2020
Deadline to add your name was Jan. 14. We still welcome your contribution to help pay for the media space!
Each year at this time we step out on a limb to buy a FULL-PAGE AD in the statewide edition of the Courier-Journal. The reason is to commemorate the Jan. 22, 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that opened the floodgates to abortion in America. The ad features as many pro-lifers’ names as we can get, along with a message and image to provoke thinking about abortion.
Please be part of this important message to Kentucky. We will add your name or family names to the “signature” ad. We request $5 from individuals, couples or families to support the expensive media outreach. Please sign now and pay online or send a check: 134 Breckinridge Lane, Louisville, KY 40207.
The ad will run on Sunday, Jan. 19. We want your JOHN HANCOCK!
UPDATE: Registration is closed. KRLA will take a contingent to the 2020 March for Life via jet!
Leave 12:35 PM on Thursday, January 23, and get home at 8:43 PM on Friday, January 24— That is the plan for the KRLA delegation to the 2020 March for Life!
Our superb coordinator Jerry Durbin introduces to you a better way to travel and be part of the 2020 March— Let’s fly— Bus trips are slow and dangerous if snow accumulates on the road.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, October 30, 2019 by calling 502-895-5959. Planning ahead is how we get the great rates! Be part of a new approach, and send Congress a message by your participation.
If you were not able to hear and watch Gov. Bevin and his running mate, Sen. Ralph Alvarado, speak out for LIFE at the KRLA Rally for Life on 3/7/19, you will in the video.
Many of us were so disappointed that we could not enter the Capitol to be part of the Rally. When we arrived an EXTREMMMMELY long line of teachers, both at the Capitol and Annex entrances, meant that by the time we would get inside, the Rally would be long over. None of us realized this until we got there.
We thank EVERYONE who came from so many different areas of Kentucky. What a disappointment! Those who did get in could barely hear the speeches due to the commotion of the staggering crowd of teachers. It’s wonderful that we have this video!
“Fight for the sanctity of human life and know that as your governor and as your legislature we will continue to fight with you every step of the way!” - Gov. Bevin at the 2019 Rally for Life Thank you, Governor Bevin!
It was COLD! But dry. Thank you to everyone who rallied with the RTL of Louisville on the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Shown are part of the group at the Louisville Metro Hall and Debbie Brown, Louisville RTL board member, facing the traffic on Jefferson St.
