Addia WuchnerKentucky Right to Life enters a new, exciting phase of its outreach and growth, led by Addia Wuchner.

Addia, a Louisville native, served in the House of Representatives, District 66, for Boone County and Kentucky citizens from 2005 until 2019. She was the first woman in Ky to be appointed Chair of the House Standing Committee on Health and Family Services.

She is an unwavering pro-life, pro-family and pro-woman advocate who has championed the human rights of the unborn child and women’s right to know, the healthcare right to make a completely informed decision before giving consent to abortion.

From the inception, drafting and presentation of the Ultrasound Bill (2017 Ky House Bill 2) to its final vindication by the U.S. Supreme Court, Addia promoted this critical piece of pro-life legislation across the finish line. For the first time in history, women who seek an abortion in Kentucky now must be given the opportunity to see who will be aborted and to hear the fetal heartbeat before a final decision is made.

In 2018 she penned The Human Rights of the Child Act - ‘Dismemberment Abortion’ bill, banning live dismemberment abortions in the Commonwealth. The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the lower Court injunction, but Attorney General Cameron is committed to pursuing a challenge to the ruling.

During her tenure in the Kentucky General Assembly she served on the Economic Development and Workforce Committee, Banking and Insurance and Budget Subcommittee for Human Services Committee, Appropriations and Revenue, Education and Workforce Development, Tourism, Transportation, and numerous task forces and working groups including the Healthy Babies Council.

In 2006, Representative Wuchner worked tirelessly to ensure that her child pornography legislation became law, raising the offense of child pornography in Kentucky from a Misdemeanor to a Class D Felony.

In 2010 after months of work, her Pediatric Abusive Head Trauma Act, the “Shaken Baby Prevention” bill, passed and became model legislation for child abuse prevention.

Working across the aisle, in 2013 she co-sponsored HB 3, the Kentucky Human Trafficking Victims Right Act, which successfully passed, sending a clear message that this modern day slavery has no place in Kentucky.

A long-time advocate for dyslexia awareness and ensuring Kentucky students early identification and appropriate interventions, she championed both the 2012 Kentucky’s Response to Intervention Act and the 2018 Ready to Read Act.

Her dedication as a servant leader has also been demonstrated in her work as a businesswoman, bioethicist, registered nurse, community leader, and humanitarian mission director. She has placed her life in the service of others throughout the Commonwealth and abroad.

Thomas More University awarded her an Honorary Doctorate in Humane Letters in recognition of her overall contributions in bioethics, rights of the unborn, and international humanitarian aid.

Addia served six years on the Northern Kentucky Independent Health Department Board of Directors with passion and energy to improve both the economic and physical well-being of all Kentucky citizens, especially our most vulnerable citizens, children.

She is a member of the 2007 Class of Leadership Kentucky and is an alumni of the 2005 Toll Fellows Program (Quest for Excellence) which recognizes excellence in public leaders.

Addia is a Registered Nurse and has been a dedicated healthcare professional for over 36 years, recognized for her contributions in advancing the role of bioethics in healthcare and public policy. She began her career as a nurse at St. Anthony Hospital in Louisville.

She served as Vice President of Strategic Planning for the Health Alliance of Greater Cincinnati and Senior Director of Corporate Relations for the St. Luke Hospitals for eight years.

Her faith and mission-driven vision have taken her around the globe, at times to places few would venture. She was the founder and missions director for Project Wings Of Mercy, International Medical and Humanitarian Aid, completing nine missions to war-torn Bosnia and Croatia during the 1991-94 conflict.

Other missions include: medical aid and disaster relief to New Orleans following hurricane Katrina, annual specialty surgical missions to Mexico, and disaster relief missions to Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

Addia and her husband Jan have three children, 12 grandchildren and a lovable Wheaten Terrier named Buddy.

The happy expression, “Our prayers have been answered!” describes the KRLA board members’ delight in sharing this wonderful news with our members and friends. Special thanks go to the Search Committee headed by Louisville RTL President Cathie Young.

A Jan. 11 press conference hosted by KRLA and pro-life advocacy groups celebrated the amazing pro-life work accomplished in Week 1 of the regular session! Watch the press conference here. See and hear Attorney General Daniel Cameron, Senator Whitney Westerfield (shown), Representatives Joe Fischer and Nancy Tate and others.

Kentucky General Assembly passes two top priority pro-life bills; these now await the Governor’s signature

Frankfort KY - Protecting Kentucky children and women is paramount. The Kentucky Right to Life Association sincerely appreciates Representative Joe Fischer, Senator Whitney Westerfield, and Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron in their unwavering commitment to ensure healthcare safety and protections for all Kentucky children and women.

We applaud the Kentucky House and Senate Majority Leadership and their Pro-life Caucus Members on an expedient and historic 2021 Session of the Kentucky General Assembly “Week 1”! Two of KRLA’s priority bills have passed both chambers, were signed by Speaker of the House David Osborne and President of the Senate Robert Stivers, and were delivered to the Governor for his signature or not….

HB 2 adds additional health and safety assurances and protection for women seeking to terminate their pregnancy by allowing the Attorney General oversight and to act unencumbered to investigate abortion facilities and take action if violations of the law have occurred.

KRLA is unwaveringly pro-child and pro-woman. We work to ensure that Kentucky women facing the uncertainties of an unplanned pregnancy have the opportunity to be fully informed before giving consent to terminate the life of their child and that the abortion facilities adhere to the highest safety standards of care.

SB 9 supports the “human rights” of any child born alive during an abortion procedure to receive appropriate and ethically responsible medical attention. Additionally, SB9 legally formalizes that any born-alive infant shall be treated as a legal person in Kentucky statutes.

KRLA, our Affiliates and our friends of Life from around the Commonwealth are pleased to support both House Bill 2 and Senate Bill 9.

We are sincerely grateful both of these important pieces of legislation were included in the 2021 “WEEK 1” House and Senate priorities.

We congratulate Rep. Nancy Tate on her new position as co-chair of the Pro-life Caucus, with Sen. Robby Mills. Nancy is a member of the KRLA board of directrors.

Kentucky Right to Life Association and our Right to Life Education Foundation have been blessed by such amazing loyal supporters, volunteers, and faith-filled friends of Life this past year. While the year was full of trials and challenges, there were so many blessings and beautiful moments as we continued our journey to support the human rights of the preborn child and to uphold LIFE from conception until that natural death.

At KRLA we are looking forward to 2021 in the spirit of hope! While there are some uncertainties before us in this new year, our unity for LIFE is sure. Prolife partners— prayer warriors, charitable benefactors, volunteers, frontline warriors who stand in witnesses on street corners, each and every one of our faithful supporters— we enter 2021 with united hearts inflamed in a ceaseless act of love for the preborn and the vulnerable. There is much work to be done and we will chart toward new horizons in 2021. Be assured of our prayers for you and your families and all our benefactors.

It’s not enough that a female now can get the abortion pills (combination of medications) online with only an online consultation. The abortion mavens want teens and women to get the abortion pills EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT SURE THEY ARE PREGNANT!

They call it the Missed-period Pill (MPP) for No-test Medical Abortion.

A seminar was held last spring to announce the project, and a sample protocol has been written. See here. Media hype has begun. The group is now exploring potential interest.

Why? “It appears that after decades of feminism, culminating in groups like Shout Your Abortion, many women still appear to be ashamed of having an abortion. A dark stigma still hangs over the procedure.” (ref)

According to the NYTimes, “Abortion drugs administered as early as 28 days after a woman’s last period can offer comfort in uncertainty to those who want it.” A survey found that “for all of the ease and convenience of the at-home test, a significant number of women would prefer not to know...”

One participant said that such a service would be ‘a psychological cushion’ for those women “who may be unsure of their own feelings on abortion.” Another said that she thought it would result “in less moral conflict,” and a third that she would feel “less guilty of my choice.”

We were warned by Planned Parenthood that they intend to erase the stigma attached to abortion.

Some abortion activists call the MPP Plan C: “It could be positioned between emergency contraception and abortion (which is the termination of a confirmed pregnancy), filling the gaping hole in the continuum of options available to those trying to manage their fertility.” [ibid Bioedge]

We are sure the American Assoc. of Pro-life ObGyns will work to prevent this potential harm to women and babies. KRLA is on board to protest this highly dangerous experiment.

A Trump Victory

On Dec. 18, 2020, The Supreme Court ruled in a 6-3 decision that the federal government may remove illegal aliens from the 2020 Census count in relation to apportioning congressional seats, a victory for the Trump administration. However, the Census Bureau missed the statutory deadline of Dec. 31 for handing in the count affecting the seats.

A dissenting opinion was filed by Justice Stephen Breyer, joined by Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. The ACLU promised to sue, should the “policy” be implemented. It is not clear which states could lose a seat in Congress, but California is an educated guess.


ORIGINAL POST:

We await critical 2020 Election news. Will the hard evidence of voter fraud (example) be addressed by the courts and legislators? Nothing is more important, yet there is an issue under SCOTUS review that runs a close second to that one, from a pro-life perspective.

On Monday, Nov. 30, SCOTUS heard oral argument in Trump v. New York. The case will determine whether the 2020 US Census count will include persons or subsets of people in the country illegally. President Trump instructed the secretary of commerce last summer to present the census information so that he could exclude noncitizens from the full count for purposes of apportioning seats in the House of Representatives. The US Constitution, Article I, Section 2, requires congressional apportionment to be based on an “enumeration” of the U.S. population.

This differentiation has been handled variously in the past. A citizenship question was asked in each census from 1890 to 1950, but in 1960, times changed.

So simple?

On the surface it sounds like a simple matter. Why should non-citizens be counted when only citizens can vote for the representatives? However, many insist ‘there is no such thing as an illegal person’ (despite laws to the contrary), and of course, undocumented people are counted in the census so that cities and states can receive federal assistance in serving their needs. This would not be affected.

But if the 2020 Census counts citizens only, perhaps some states would lose congressional seats. Since the Democrats oppose the citizenship question, they must feel that they would. Of course, subtracting Democrat seats benefits pro-life goals.

Including undocumented people in the population count also affects redistricting of legislative enclaves in cities and states. The tendency of large cities toward corrupt politics can produce legislators who are not pro-life.

Supreme Court

Acting Solicitor General Jeffrey B. Wall argued the case for President Trump very well. Atty. Dale Ho, ACLU Voting Rights Dir., argued the case for the ACLU. You can listen to the oral argument here, and a pdf of the transcript is here. The hearing is also on C-span.

President Trump attempted to add a “citizenship question” to the 2020 census in June 2019, but this effort failed, with Chief Roberts casting the deciding vote.

Biden has promised to quickly send an immigration bill to the U.S. Senate with a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million illegal immigrants in America.

Would this action override the 2020 Census citizen count, if Trump does win the legal case? Will Biden be POTUS? Would the newly minted citizens be pro-abortion? Maybe not, but they may still vote for the Party that gave them the pass.

Best case scenario: Our country and officials will refuse to certify illegal votes, President Trump will remain in office, and SCOTUS will favor citizens only as constituents of our representatives.

A quick review of bogged-down cases:

  1. On Oct. 30, AG Daniel Cameron requested SCOTUS to review the Dismemberment Abortion law which the Appeals Court overturned last June. This law passed the Ky legislature in April of 2018. In Nebraska, a law prohibiting D&E abortion on live unborn babies went into effect last month. This means that 14 states have passed such legislation, but only four have enacted their law: Nebraska, Miss., W. Va. and Ohio. Why not Ky? Think positive and pray.
  2. On Nov. 20, the ACLU, Planned Parenthood and the EMW, along with attorneys from Calif., Washington D.C., New York, and Louisville (total 13 attorneys), filed a document in the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals to request an En Banc hearing of the Transfer Agreements case which the Appeals Court panel upheld on October 16. The TA law passed the Ky Legislature in July of 1998. It had been ignored before Bevin took office.
  3. In the spring of 2019 Ky’s Heartbeat and No Discrimination laws passed and were quickly challenged and combined in a legal maneuver by the ACLU. Last spring Western District Judge Hale stated he would wait to hear the Appeals Court verdict on an Ohio law, Preterm-Cleveland v. Himes, which would ban abortion on Down Syndrome babies, before deciding the case. However, a Tenn. law similar to Ky’s Heartbeat/No Discrimination laws was partially upheld by the Appeals Court on Nov. 20, to ban abortions based on Down Syndrome or race. This action could affect Judge Hale’s decision. The Appeals panel did not uphold the entire Tenn. law. Ky AG Daniel Cameron led an 18-state coalition in an Amicus brief, asking the Appeals Court to uphold the entire law.

Some existing laws are also in a state of suspension. Ky’s law to require that women be made aware of the Abortion Pill Reversal method by her abortion doctor, which passed in spring 2019, is not currently enforced since a woman can order abortion pills online with only an online medical consultation. See Ruling here. It’s likely that not many women know this, or abortion statistics for the EMW would be lower. This national ruling also overrides, we assume, Ky’s law against TelMed, WebCam or “telehealth” abortions.

Ky law also requires that a physician certify that an abortion is necessary, and this doctor must also describe the basis for his/her best clinical judgment. Numerous articles state that most abortions are done for social or economic reasons.

Though ‘clinical’ once referred to medical treatment, it now only means that a person has been observed in a clinic setting.

Laws may be suspended when their criteria are blurred or prevented by societal change. Such change engenders legal challenges to good laws.

Let’s continue to insist on the rule of law and work hard for pro-life goals.

UPDATED on Jan. 6, 2021 | Watch for further comment.

KRLA will not recognize a winner of the 2020 presidential election until all results are certified and any legal challenges are resolved. We support Rhonda Palazzo’s team in their efforts to verify voting results in Jefferson Co.

We are somewhat surprised that the mainstream media declared a winner nearly a week ago, and that these sources have doubled down on their selection in round-the-clock or nightly coverage.

We also are somewhat surprised that our Facebook posts have effectively been countered by their censors. Nearly each time we add a news story that exposes voter fraud, they add a message that sends viewers to their own Voter Information Center. We will additionally begin sharing pro-life news and info on up-and-coming social media sites Parler.com and USA.life/KYRTLA.

Facebook lists the media we should trust for election news: Reuters/NEP*/Edison, AP, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, USA Today, NY Times, Washington Post, Fox News and WSJ. That last one came as another surprise. But the WSJ.com front page has this headline (on Nov. 11): Biden and McConnell Hold Key to Cooperation.

But hold on!

The people we trust are continuing to uphold the Rule of Law. Attorney General Daniel Cameron has signed an Amicus Brief in support of a Republican lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania mail-in ballots before the U.S. Supreme Court.

President Trump has stated:

The American people are entitled to an honest election: That means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election.

Leader McConnell has said:

Obviously, no states have yet certified their election results. We have at least one or two states that are already on track for a recount and I believe the President may have legal challenges underway in at least five states.

President Trump is 100% within his rights to look into allegations of irregularities and weigh his legal options.

A conservative news source has this infographic today. Looks like President Trump is in the lead.

smiling-baby.jpgCandidates endorsed by Kentucky Right to Life PAC were overwhelmingly victorious in the General Election on Tuesday. We are thankful for the increase in the numbers of pro-life candidates who won, further adding to the Republican pro-life super majorities in both houses of the Kentucky General Assembly.

We look forward to supporting these pro-life legislators, working together to end the war on unborn children in Kentucky. By way of abortion, the unborn child and the family have become the focus of all attacks and contempt— they are utterly unbearable to the other side.

Of the 13 Senate races, 11 candidates who were either Endorsed or Recommended by KRLA PAC, won their seats. The makeup of the 2021 Ky Senate will be 30 seats held by Republicans and 8 seats held by Democrats.

Of the 100 House races, 70 candidates who were either Endorsed or Recommended by KRLA PAC, won their seats. The makeup of the 2021 Ky House will be 75 seats held by Republicans and 25 seats held by Democrats.

“While it goes without saying that Kentucky is a pro-life state, the results of the election are a sound repudiation of Governor Beshear’s policies and his pro-abortion position”, said Diana Maldonado, president of Kentucky Right to Life. “The fact this governor has allowed the abortion businesses in Louisville to remain open while other businesses were either forced to close or severely cut back on services during the Covid-19 pandemic, speaks ‘loud and clear’ to the governor’s extremism regarding abortion.”

pastor charles elliott and rhonda palazzo

This morning, a media conference was held by Black pastors in downtown Louisville to show support for pro-life candidates and “to change the narrative.” The photo shows Pastor Charles Elliott, other pastors and Third Congressional District Republican candidate Rhonda Palazzo in prayer; the black leaders taking the cross on a march to Jefferson Square Park; and the T-shirt message stating their pro-life stance. Pastor Elliott is a well-known civil rights leader and was a confidante to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He also marched with Rosa Parks. The event was covered by WHAS-TV, WAVE-TV and KRLA. The organizers’ press release follows.

Black leaders march for Bible-based solutions to advance black families through love, forgiveness and education— rather than Marxist tactics of fear, intimidation, violence and destruction.

Sat., Oct. 31, Black leaders will assemble at 10:30 AM at Greater Salem Baptist Church, 1009 West Chestnut in Louisville, Ky. for a press conference where Pastor Charles Elliott and black pastors throughout Kentucky will ENDORSE CANDIDATES for President, the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives who stand for THE TRADITIONAL FAMILY and THE RIGHT FOR UNBORN BABIES TO LIVE.

Following endorsements, Pastor Derek Wilson of Louisville will announce the Black Families Matter Foundation to fund Christian Schools in Black churches and explain how the foundation differs from the Black Lives Matter Organization’s Marxist goals for America. At the conclusion of the press conference, the Black Men’s March will proceed to minister God’s love as the men walk to Jefferson Square Park declaring the Truth of God’s Word.

supreme court to hear ky case

FRANKFORT, Ky. (October 30, 2020) – Attorney General Daniel Cameron today filed a petition for a writ of certiorari before the United States Supreme Court asking the court to hear the ACLU’s challenge to Kentucky’s live dismemberment abortion law (House Bill 454). The law, passed by the General Assembly in 2018, prohibits abortionists from performing gruesome Dilation and Evacuation procedures (D&E) on a living unborn child.

Consideration of Mississippi case rescheduled

The court had previously been scheduled to discuss on Friday a challenge to a Mississippi ban on abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, but that petition has been rescheduled and will be discussed at some future conference. Read more.


Amy Coney Barrett sworn in
Amy Coney Barrett sworn in by Justice Clarence Thomas, 10-26-20 - photo credit: whitehouse.gov

Only hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to approve ACB’s nomination, Mississippi’s Attorney General petitioned SCOTUS to review the state’s 15-week abortion ban. The AG, Lynn Fitch, had initially asked for this review last June.

This time she referenced the high court’s summer 2020 decision on June Medical Services v. Russo that favored abortion providers as it ruled that doctors need no admitting privileges with a hospital. Though it disappointed pro-lifers, the decision has since been cited in other appeals, quoting Justice Roberts’ opinion, and helping to uphold legislation such as Ky’s Transfer Agreement Law.

Roberts wrote that lawmakers have wide discretion “in areas where there is medical and scientific uncertainty” and that weighing the “costs and benefits of an abortion regulation” was not necessarily a job for the courts. The Circuit Judge for the Ky case, Joan Larsen, ruled that states must step in to regulate clinics where a need for safety is discovered.

So, Ky’s TA case helped to promote the need for clarification by SCOTUS on certain issues. For example: Which legal precedent should be applied to protection of the woman’s health?

Ky AG Daniel Cameron signed an Amicus Brief last summer in support of the Mississippi case, questioning: “Whether an abortion law is necessarily unconstitutional, regardless of the State’s interest or the actual burden on women, when it theoretically could prevent a small number of women from obtaining a previability abortion.” Viability is a Roe v. Wade stumper.

The Mississippi Free Press reported on Wed., Oct. 27 (2020):

Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban could soon make its way to the U.S. Supreme Court, with the court set to decide whether to hear it on Friday. The court announced plans to consider hearing the case yesterday evening—just as the U.S. Senate voted on a party-line basis to confirm President Donald Trump’s third pick to the high court, Amy Coney Barrett.

Lower courts in 2018 and 2020 found the Mississippi law unconstitutional under the precedent Roe v. Wade set in 1973. In court filings, though, Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch is asking the nation’s high court to revisit and overturn one of Roe v. Wade’s key holdings: that “a State may not prohibit any woman from making the ultimate decision to terminate her pregnancy before (fetal) viability.”

The lower courts ruled that the Mississippi law banning abortions at 15 weeks, known as “The Gestational Age Act,” was unconstitutional for that reason; medical science says fetuses generally become viable outside the womb at around 24 weeks.

“This Court should grant the petition, hold that it is illogical to impose a ‘rigid line’ allowing state regulation after viability but prohibiting it before viability” and “uphold the Gestational Age Act,” Attorney General Lynn Fitch wrote in a filing with the U.S. Supreme Court over the summer.

The current case, Fitch wrote in a Supreme Court filing, is “an ideal vehicle to promptly resolve” questions about Roe v. Wade and the Supreme Court’s position on abortion rights…

She and Meiners agreed that it was safe to go downtown and that people feel safe now. This backfired a bit when Hess stated that the LMPD is minus 100 officers at this time.
