Attorney General Daniel Cameron today continued his unwavering defense of the unborn by asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit to rehear a case involving a Kentucky law that bans live-dismemberment abortions. Attorney General Cameron tendered a Petition for Rehearing asking the case to be reheard en banc by all 16 judges of the court.

House Bill 454, known as the Human Rights of Unborn Children Act, was passed in 2018 by the General Assembly and requires abortion providers to ensure that an unborn child dies before beginning the gruesome dismemberment abortion procedure. The bill does not ban the controversial abortion procedure, but, instead, requires that the procedure is performed in a more humane manner. The bill was passed with bipartisan support and was immediately challenged by the ACLU on behalf of EMW Women’s Surgical Center.

“We’re exhausting every possible option to ensure that this law continues to be defended and is ultimately enforced,” said Attorney General Cameron. “The law extends compassion and dignity to the unborn by ensuring they are not subjected to the horror and pain of the dismemberment process while still alive. We would never allow the dismemberment of any other living being, and we are going to continue fighting, all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary, so that it can’t happen to unborn children (KRLA emphasis).”

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!

The many pro-life lawsuits defended during the Bevin administration were led by Steve Pitt who served as Gov. Bevin’s General Counsel. Then AG Andy Beshear refused to handle the suits brought by EMW, Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, so Bevin called upon his own staff to handle the extensive litigation.

The work was intense and demanded self sacrifice since it was  beyond Pitt and his attorneys’ call of duty. This was recognized in a House Resolution during the 2019 General Assembly to Honor the dedicated and tireless work of Governor Bevin's legal team at this pivotal time in the fight for life and in defense of the unborn. - HR 218 states:

Governor Bevin’s legal team has accepted the challenge to defend the critically important pro-life legislation passed by the General Assembly and has assumed the duties constitutionally mandated to be performed by the Attorney General; and… consists of only three attorneys who have dedicated a tremendous number of hours to the fight for life, working thousands of hours with no overtime pay…

The outstanding legal team included some attorneys who worked in the Health and Family Services department as well.

On May 25th, Atty. Pitt stepped down from his role as counsel and special adviser to AG Daniel Cameron. We want to specially thank and commend him for his excellent work on behalf of innocent life and the many pro-life Kentuckians. We look for even greater achievements as he goes forward in his life and work.

Pro-lifers in Kentucky currently await a number of important court rulings:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Dismemberment Abortion is what it is. The arms, legs and torso are torn off and the head is crushed to abort the living child. Yet, as destructive as this IS, somehow the body parts of pre-born babies are harvested for medical research, as was exposed by the Center for Medical Progress beginning in 2015.

The Courier-Journal did not have an extensive article celebrating the June 2nd Court of Appeals decision which said Kentucky’s passage of HB454 was unconstitutional. As well, the brief article was never linked from the home page. An excellent article was posted in the National Right to Life News.

Our pro-life General Assembly passed HB454 in 2018 to make D&E abortion illegal. It was immediately challenged by the EMW and ACLU. When District Judge McKinley handed the victory to the EMW, Gov. Bevin appealed the case.

At the Appeals Court hearing last January in Cincinnati, few abortion supporters showed up—as shown in the media conference photo (all press, ACLU attorney, no supporters), but pro-lifers packed the courtroom and the media event. (See photo.)

no-support-aclu.jpg

The law to stop Dismemberment Abortion is not pro-life legislation; it is to uphold human dignity and to address fetal pain. AG Daniel Cameron noted in the press conference following the hearing that Kentucky would not permit this gruesome and inhumane medical procedure to be practiced on an animal— Why do we accept it for the human infant? He also promised to pursue the case to the Supreme Court if needed. We will post again as news is made.

Other states have successfully passed such legislation. The NRLC followed up with a statement on June 5th.


KRLA Forum

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.

neverrarely.jpgNew 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.

A new film, Never Rarely Sometimes Always, glorifies Planned Parenthood. A movie review on The New Republic site gushes:

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.

Two online Summits were held earlier this month and both featured Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., whose Children’s Health Defense movement targets ‘big pharma.’ RFK was 14 when his father was assassinated during his run for president in 1968 after serving as JFK's Attorney General.

Robert Kennedy has primarily worked as an environmental lawyer. His litigation in mercury contamination attracted the interest of parents whose children were harmed by vaccines with mercury adjutants, and on hearing their stories he stepped up to litigate for them.

There is much written about this on the internet, and because of his name recognition and passion for the cause, a lot of progress has been made in exposing vaccine dangers.

The Summits featured several interviews of special interest to pro-lifers. One, “Aborted Fetal Cell Use and Religious Exemption,” provided background on how the cell lines from aborted fetuses (who were alive when their cells were extracted) are still being used to produce vaccinations for babies and children. When the distinct DNA of aborted humans is merged into the cells of the vaccinated children, devastating health consequences frequently result. An example cited is the incidence of autism in the USA, currently 1 in 54 according to the CDC, but other sources report even more. The featured interviewee Marcella Piper-Terry has a YouTube video of an interview on the Today Show describing her personal experience with vaccinations for her children, but the conference videos are pay-for-play.

Another session, “Mandatory Vaccinations vs. Religious & Parental Rights,” offered a political activism slant on this conscience rights issue by KrisAnne Hall, a constitutional attorney.

The second topic for pro-lifers centered on Stem Cell research. Theresa Deisher, Ph.D., was interviewed by media expert Del Bigtree about her work. She was the first to identify and patent the adult stem cell, and sued the HSS and NIH for permitting the use of embryonic stem cells in research because they are known to cause tumors. There is much information on this online.

Dr. Deisher has been an innovator in pro-life branding of consumer products and has her own biotech firm, AVM Biotech, which is at the forefront of pro-life, safe vaccines and treatments.

The debates about current work on COVID-19 vaccines were part of the virtual conferences. For more information on these issues, see the Health Summit website, the Truth about Vaccines site, the Children’s Health Defense site, and the Children of God for Life site that has articles on COVID-19 and pro-life treatment and warns about the use of aborted fetal cells in COVID-19 Moderna vaccine.

Election news is troubling. Only one polling place for the Primary in Jefferson Co.? Will “faithless” electors in the Electoral College skew the real results in November?

These are only a few of the concerns facing Kentuckians as we head toward the June 23 Primary and November elections. And it has never been more important for pro-lifers to vote and to help “get out the vote”!

You can request a ballot by filling out an online application on your County Clerk website. In Jefferson Co. one would select the last reason for requesting an absentee ballot, “Medical Emergency {COVID-19} (R)”.

You should then receive a message that your request has been received, however, we did not find that to be true. Perhaps the web technologies involved are not yet functional. Let’s be vigilant, and be sure to vote!

Pushing the envelope or pushing the coat hanger?

SPECIAL for ObGyn Physicians

May 7, 2020 | Eau Claire, Mich. | Donna J. Harrison M.D., Executive Director

Reprinted by permission of AAPLOG, American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists.


When we think of someone who sells drugs to a buyer, knowing that drug will result in an ER visit for nearly one out of 20 buyers and surgery for almost that many, we generally think of illegal drug dealers. Think again. The new drug dealers are pushing do-it-yourself abortion with Mifeprex and Misoprostol. Why?

The abortion industry has two significant problems:

  1. Most doctors don't want to do abortions. Roughly 3/4 of ob-gyns will not perform abortions. The doctors that do perform abortions are aging out of practice.
  2. Medical standard of care practice requirements like informed consent, at-minimum 24-hour waiting periods, hospital privileges, procedure rooms adequately sterilized and stocked with resuscitative equipment, trained anesthetists and other standards of medical care practice that the rest of us comprehend as essential to patient safety, the abortion industry disdains as "preventing access." The real complaint, however, is "cuts into our bottom line profit margin."

The COVID-19 epidemic has brought the primary, financial objective of the abortion industry into sharp focus: to abort as many women as possible in as little time as possible, with as little follow up as possible. Abortion clinics have flouted requirements to cancel elective surgeries, now claiming preposterously that instead of a "choice," elective abortion is essential medical care. Abortion clinics cancel pelvic exams, pap smears, other cancer screenings and STI screenings; they flout state laws by refusing to report pregnancies in cases of statutory rape, refusing to obtain state-mandated parental or legal guardian consent and ignoring COVID-19 abortion bans. But you can't have it both ways… essential medical care requires complying with medical standards of care, which the abortion industry refuses to do because money for abortion is their bottom line.

National Right to Life reports in its May magazine that the term “surgical abortion” is being replaced with “procedural abortion.” Newspeak is an especially fierce battlefront of the culture war.

The NRLC story refers to a Rewire.News article, published last month, stating:

Rewire.News has updated its style guide to more accurately describe abortion care. Instead of referring to “medication and surgical” abortion to distinguish between abortions induced by pills and abortions performed as an in-clinic procedure, Rewire.News will use “medication and procedural” abortion.

The article explains that for pregnancies in the first trimester (up to 12 weeks) the procedure is a five to 10 minute process “involving gentle suction to remove the products of conception,” and it does not typically require cutting or suturing of any kind. To see an abortion of a 12-week old pre-born baby, see Dr. Bernard Nathanson’s video, The Silent Scream. There are surgical aspects.

Numerous metal instruments are inserted into the woman to achieve the abortion. Tissue must be cut— the amniotic sac in which the baby lives has to be torn open so that the suction tube can vacuum out his or her body parts (— at 12 weeks we know whether it’s a boy or girl). A polyp forceps must be inserted to crush the head before the skull bones and brains can be sucked out. So, by definition, even early stage abortion is surgery. (See the AMA definition of surgery.)

The article quotes healthcare providers who are irked when they are accused of using “a whole bunch of critical medical supplies and take PPE [personal protective equipment] away from the hospital” during the pandemic.

faceshield.jpgAfter all, they say, a first-trimester abortion only requires “2 pairs of gloves (1 for the ultrasound and 1 for the procedure) and a reusable face shield. A gown and mask are not usually required… If a person is forced to carry their pregnancy to term, their cesarean section would require significantly more PPE…” (We have inserted pictures of face shields in case readers may be wondering how they differ from masks.)

Now you know. Clinic personnel will not be wearing face masks for surgical abortions. We wonder— Do they require the patients do so?

Sincere thanks to the sidewalk counselors who have consistently stood nearby the women entering the EMW clinic despite the pandemic. A wonderful description of what is going on there, written by Ed Harpring, the Pro-Life Coordinator for the Archdiocese of Louisville, can be read on Facebook.

ferko.jpgAt the end of the 2020 Legislative Session Sen. Ernie Harris, R-District 26, announced his retirement after 25 years. A pro-life voter in the Legislature, we wish him well. District 26 comprises Oldham County and northeastern Jefferson County.

In a special election slated for the state's re-scheduled Primary Election, KRLA has endorsed William G. Ferko, a Prospect businessman and charitable organizer.

Mr. Ferko is a private investor and director of computer/ manufacturing innovator, Sypris Solutions, Inc. He is staunchly pro-life and will "tirelessly uphold our Kentucky values" as a Republican representing the 26th Senatorial District. His campaign website soon will have more information.

He is board chairman of Dismas Charities and a member of St. Bernadette Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus Council 13053 which is active in pro-life work. He responded to the KRLA-PAC endorsement thanking KRLA "for your work to prevent abortions and to prevent killing babies."

The Democrat opposing him is a graduate of EMERGE-Kentucky. EMERGE is a candidate-training organization for Democratic women. The EmergeAmerica.org website lists former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, Gloria Steinem, Donna Brazile, Patricia Schroeder (etc) on its advisory board. In a Politico article, it appears that Emerge candidates get $$$$$ from George Soros. The same article is on the Emerge website.

PLEASE BE AWARE: Since District 26 is a SPECIAL ELECTION, the PRIMARY is the ONLY TIME that you can exercise your vote for a PRO-LIFE SENATOR FOR DISTRICT 26. The election of Bill Ferko is critical to maintaining a strong voice for the vulnerable preborn during the 2021 legislative session.

UPDATE: 8-27-2020 | Governor Beshear announces commutations of 646 inmates. More
IMPORTANT TO KNOW:
»» Kentucky’s Constitution denies the vote to anyone with a felony conviction but allows the governor to restore that right to individuals (not legal as a BLANKET pardon for groups).
»» Gov. Beshear’s order does not require former felons to complete payment of fines or other legal costs before gaining the right to vote, an issue that has snarled implementation of a 2018 ballot initiative that ordered the restoration of voting rights in Florida.
»» In remarks at the State Capitol, Mr. Beshear urged the Legislature to remove that ban through an amendment, but said that he would seek to make the restoration process as automatic as possible until that occurred. (Ref)
»» Only the Kentucky voter has the authority to amend our constitution.

The Courier-Journal stated on December 12, 2019 that the voting rights of more than 140,000 felons with completed sentences were restored by Gov. Beshear. Readers were simultaneously reminded about Bevin’s pardons of criminals through in-article links to stories.

Then, on March 4, 2020, the C-J reported about a state website that allows 152,000 Ky. felons to see if their voting rights have been restored. There is a big difference between 140,000 and 152,000.

Then on April 2, 2020 the C-J told us in a story headline that Gov. Beshear would release 186 inmates, “as coronavirus cases rapidly increase with 700 more coming soon.” But in the article the specific number was 743. “It's likely to be the first of at least two waves of early releases, with the second involving 743 inmates, state officials said.”

Then on April 28, 2020, the C-J announced that Gov. Beshear commuted the sentences of an additional 352 state inmates. They were near the end of sentences for nonviolent, nonsexual felonies.

Gov. Bevin had intended to ask Kentuckians to vote on a ballot measure as to whether or not felon voting rights should be restored. It would be the people’s decision.

An attorney friend has noted: I always thought that, if a person was convicted of a felony, they had shown poor judgment and should lose the right to vote. If they lived a good life for a period of time after serving their time, they could petition for a restoration of their voting rights, but I don't think it should be automatic. I also am not crazy about automatic expungement of records. It is one thing to give a person a second chance, but it is up to the person to show they are worthy of it, and potential employers should not be deceived.

Whatever your sincerely held belief on the matter, the number of felons who can vote this year is increasing as the pandemic evolves. How will this affect the 2020 Elections?

The “niche” is a marketing dream. With a niche, a business can so easily target numerous individuals to attract their interest and to educate them. To gain their loyalty. To—ask for their vote? But, who would do this? Who has the felons’ contact information?

Some races will be very close. For example, in the 2018 General Election, in District 96, Kathy Hinkle (D) won over incumbent representative Jill York (R) by 5 votes. In District 91, for that election, Cluster Howard (D) beat incumbent representative Toby Herald (R) by 7 votes. The image from Ballotpedia.com shows a race that was won by A SINGLE VOTE. Many other races in 2018 were extremely close, and they will be again in 2020.

glenn_johnson_1.jpg

Some (many?) citizens may not bother to vote in the Primary because of the “pandemic” process that requires more effort than ever before.

See this article for the new process.

Yes, pro-lifers currently hold a majority in the Kentucky House and Senate, but DON’T EVER IMAGINE that cannot change.
