Congratulations to Governor Bevin and running mate Ralph Alvarado, Secretary of State candidate Michael Adams, Attorney General contender Daniel Cameron, and Commissioner of Agriculture Ryan Quarles.

We must all ask ourselves: How can we help the Republicans win in November? Think of any who did not vote yesterday. Ask them why. Explain what is at stake. Urge them to vote.

The KRLA PAC will be active to support your efforts.

Our endorsed candidate for AG, Wil Schroder, made a great showing and we look for him to succeed in future state races.

Our celebration about the successful Appeal of the Bevin administration to uphold Kentucky’s Ultrasound Law— was short-lived.

The Courier-Journal reports:

A Kentucky abortion clinic is asking a federal appeals court to rehear an appeal in the case of a state law that requires doctors to perform ultrasounds and show fetal images to patients prior to abortion.

A divided panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last month that the 2017 law is constitutional, reversing a lower court judge.

Attorneys for the American Civil Liberties Union, representing EMW Women's Surgical Center in Louisville, the state's only abortion provider, filed a petition Monday asking that the full appeals court hear the case. The petition cites a First Amendment issue of ‘exceptional importance.’

What a disappointment. Stay tuned. Stay strong.

“All we are saying is give LIFE a chance!”

schu montgomeryEchoes 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.

A disappointing ruling against Kentucky's law to ban Dismemberment Abortion was pronounced Friday, May 10, 2019. An update to the story published May 13 includes a TV interview with KRLA executive director Margie Montgomery. Click on the image.

In the spring of 2018 the Kentucky legislature passed a law to end D&E abortions. The law states:

"Bodily dismemberment, crushing, or human vivisection" means a procedure in which a person, with the purpose of causing the death of an unborn child, dismembers the living unborn child and extracts portions, pieces, or limbs of the unborn child from the uterus through the use of clamps, grasping forceps, tongs, scissors, or a similar instrument that, through the convergence of two (2) rigid levers, slices, crushes, or grasps, or performs any combination of those actions on, any portion, piece, or limb of the unborn child's body to cut or separate the portion, piece, or limb from the body. The term includes a procedure that is used to cause the death of an unborn child and in which suction is subsequently used to extract portions, pieces, or limbs of the unborn child after the unborn child's death; …

It was further legislated that there would be no penalty for the pregnant woman and that it would not apply in a medical emergency.

A related Amicus brief may be read here. Background on the legislation is here.

Governor Bevin has promised to appeal the decision all the way to SCOTUS if necessary. Let’s work hard to re-elect our incomparable pro-life Governor!
