Thank You, Kentucky State Legislators and Governor Matt Bevin

The four bills that were introduced by Kentucky’s Pro-life Caucus on January 10 ALL passed the current legislative session. We know our Governor will sign them all!

SB 227, introduced on Feb. 15 to protect Born Alive Infants, did not make it to the finish line. We hope this bill will be re-introduced next year.

How does it feel to live in a pro-life state? Wonderful! What relief we pro-lifers feel (!), knowing that the majority of our legislators have the deepest concern for pre-born babies. Perhaps there are many things in your community and state that you would like to see changed, but at least we do have respect for life. The majority of us are holding firm that our U.S. Constitution means what it says about our Right to Life.

The bills, SB 9, the “heartbeat bill”; SB 50, abortion pill reporting requirements AND the doctor must explain the Abortion Pill Reversal Pill to the client; HB 5, no abortion for discriminatory reasons based on sex, race, color, national origin or disability; and HB 148, to end abortion if and when Roe v. Wade is overturned by SCOTUS— ALL had bipartisan support. That is further proof that Kentucky is, in the main, PRO-LIFE.

Will Kentucky be the first state NOT to have an abortion clinic? There is national speculation about that. With the ACLU challenges to our pro-life laws and bills not yet signed into law, we can’t say.

Currently we have only ONE, the EMW clinic in Louisville. And, Planned Parenthood has a clinic in Louisville with aggressive plans to establish a larger presence.

We can’t rest on our laurels but we can enjoy the moment. Today, we are passionately grateful and taking the day off. (But we are in the office!)

Enjoy the full testimony of Abby Johnson at the Public Protection Committee hearing.

SB 50 to require reporting of Abortion Pills prescribed and for the Dr. to inform the patient that the Abortion Pill can be REVERSED— was scheduled for passage in the House on Feb. 25, but … new amendments were introduced by Rep. Mary Lou Marzian. After all, it's just a joke, isn't it?

House Floor Amendment 2 - Establish a new section of KRS Chapter 213 to require a report of when a prescription is issued for any medication used to treat erectile dysfunction and any reported side effects to the Vital Statistics Branch within 15 days after the end of the month in which the prescription was issued.

House Floor Amendment 3 - Establish language to specify that all members of the General Assembly shall be responsible to pay specified court costs and fees related to certain abortion litigation.

House Floor Amendment 4 - Amend the title to read as follows: "AN ACT relating to reproductive medical information."


Rep. Marzian also slowed the passage of HB 5 with an amendment:

An unborn child residing in the Commonwealth shall have all constitutional rights and responsibilities as a citizen in the Commonwealth including but not limited to the right to public education, to pay taxes, to receive social security, to free speech, to inherit, to a trial by jury, and to peaceful assembly.

SB 50, Abortion Pill Reporting Requirements— to report dispensing a prescription for RU-486 …or any other drug …intended to end a pregnancy to the Vital Statistics Branch within 15 days after the end of the month (see full text), has some good additions:

(1) Amend to add that information on the potential ability of a physician to reverse the effects of prescription drugs for the induction of abortion be provided with each prescription; (2) require that potential abortion complications be reported to the Vital Statistics Branch; (3) amend KRS 311.725 to require that physicians verbally inform women on potential ability of a physician to reverse the effects of prescription drugs for the induction of abortion.

The Life Issues Institute has posted a new video with in-depth testimony and information about the abortion pill procedure. Did you know it can be more risky than surgical abortion?

Hats off to Brad Mattes, president of the institute. Brad was the featured speaker for the Celebration of Life Banquet in 2016.
