Kentucky Abortion Laws
The Kentucky Legislature has a Pro-Life Caucus! View all its members here.
Along with educating, helping to elect strong pro-life leaders, and promoting adoption and medical research that does not rely on killing innocent human life, KRLA pursues aggressive pro-life legislative efforts to pass laws that protect innocent human life. We do so because pro-life laws shield 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.

Infant related“Safe Haven Baby Box” -Newborn Safety Device - 2021
