Along with educating, electing strong pro-life leaders, promoting adoption and medical research that does not rely on killing innocent human life, KRLA pursues an aggressive pro-life legislative effort to pass laws that protect innocent human life. We do so because pro-life laws shields those who cannot speak for themselves and their mothers, and because the law is a teacher. To that end, we strongly support pro-life federal legislation and we at times employ lobbyists to work for pro-life legislation in Kentucky.
KRLA successfully lobbied for the following legislation in Kentucky with fellow pro-life activists:
