Even amid the languid dog days of summer, killing unborn children doesn’t subside. Here in Kentucky, dismemberment abortions, otherwise known as D&E occur more than 500 times each year.
Attempts by pro-abortionists to destigmatize dilation and evacuation and other barbaric methods of abortion are utterly shameful in a sound and civilized society. Kentucky lawmakers passed a ban on D&E, but a federal judge blocked the effort.
The once Democrat mantra of keeping abortion “safe, legal, and rare,” has been replaced with a radical insistence that abortion be permitted up to birth (even at taxpayers’ expense), while simultaneously refusing to mandate that infant survivors of botched abortions be afforded medical care to save their young lives.
Still, these massive killings are draped in euphemisms like “choice,” “right” or “reproductive freedom” (every bit a misnomer). The American public, however, isn’t buying such subterfuge. The latest Gallup poll (May 2019) has 60% of Americans wanting all (21%) or almost all (39%) abortions made illegal.

“All we are saying is give LIFE a chance!”
Echoes from a bygone anthem (“Give PEACE a chance”) reverberate through many a state capitol rotunda these days as the quest for peace —peace in the womb— grows ever louder.Once the safest place for an unborn child, a mother’s womb has too often become the killing fields.
Our astute Gov. Matt Bevin articulately stated on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight recently that the reason a flurry of legislatures and governors have stepped up their defense of innocent human life with bills challenging Roe v. Wade is because “people are appropriately outraged” that whole “generations of children” are being wiped out — all in the name of “reproductive freedom” or “choice” (certainly misnomers for those hellbent on annihilating little ones in the womb).
More than 60 million preborn babies have lost their lives since Roe’s companion case, Doe v. Bolton, stripped the states (and, therefore, the people) from protecting the preborn during all nine months of a woman’s pregnancy for reasons of “health,” not medical necessity. “Health,” the court so broadly mandated must include the “physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age.”
"With the insanity coming out of New York and Virginia … where you got lawmakers and governors basically advocating and celebrating abortion on demand, the country needs to know that there are still some sane people In this world in public office,” said Mississippi State Sen. Angela Hill. Mississippi has joined Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, and most recently, Missouri, among others before this year, in passing heartbeat bills. Read more.

Hundreds of thousands of hard-working Kentuckians who still uphold the sanctity of life and dream of the day when our government returns to protecting the preborn commend Gov. Matt Bevin and the Kentucky General Assembly for doing all they can to save the lives of unborn children and spare women from a lifetime of psychological and emotional pain, not to mention serious health risks, that do result from abortion.
Kim Greene, a board member at Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc., and other abortion supporters refuse to acknowledge the undeniable fact that every abortion tears apart or poisons a preborn child and is, therefore, inhumane and unjust. Read more.
The Life Issues Institute has posted a new video with in-depth testimony and information about the abortion pill procedure. Did you know it can be more risky than surgical abortion?
Hats off to Brad Mattes, president of the institute. Brad was the featured speaker for the Celebration of Life Banquet in 2016.
The opposition (Vote No!) spoke first. Kate Miller, advocacy director and primary lobbyist for ACLU Kentucky, was the starting quarterback with loads of statistics on how many poor women there are in Kentucky and the tremendous burden SB9 would be. She promised the unconstitutional bill would be held up in litigation for years like the other pro-life bills the Kentucky Legislature has passed.
Most people know that the pride and joy of poor people is their children. And what about adoption? It is true, though, that the ACLU knows how to jam the court system with lawsuits to convince Kentuckians that they are ignorant of the laws on abortion. (But a lot of pro-life progress has been made over the years!)
We also heard testimonies from a Planned Parenthood rep, an ObGyn doctor, a pastor of a Christian church who sees SB9 as injustice, a mother who lost a child from a fetal anomaly (did not require abortion), and an entrepreneur who could not have grown her business if SB9 had been in effect. She also said Kentucky already has way too many restrictions, forcing her to go out of state to have an abortion.
The testimonies of those who want to see SB9 pass (Vote Yes!) began with a physician with good insights on pre-born humans. We heard from a BesideUforLife center representative who is an ObGyn physician, an abortion survivor whose twin had been successfully aborted, and who had a daughter of her own. She wanted to know where was the justice and concern for her and for her daughter who would not exist except for the failed abortion. A pregnant mom was “miked” so we could hear a heartbeat. The Bill passed out of committee 10-2 and in the Senate 31-6. See KRLA Current News for more info.
By far the most forceful testimony came from Abby Johnson, a national speaker who once was employed with PP and knows first-hand what their tactics and practices are. Abby boldly reminded the opposition that they can find better work and renew their minds to think normally about life. Seated next to Abby is Sen. Matt Caslen who sponsored SB9. Next to him is Claire Culwell of Austin, Texas, whose twin was aborted.
ASIDE: Abby was the featured speaker at the Louisville RTL 2013 Celebration of Life Banquet! These banquets are always so special. Please come this year! More info.
