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.

On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has scheduled a Senate vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311)...sponsored by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.)...

Sen. Sasse has stated:

“This bill is not actually about abortion. This is about a baby that has survived an abortion, and is born alive, and is on that table, cold, fighting for life, and crying out. And it’s about the practice that’s known as ‘backing away,’ where the abortion provider simply backs away from the table and leaves the baby to die from exposure and the elements...

“On Monday night, you’re actually going to have a chance to see the United States Senate vote–individual senators– put their money where their mouth is and see if they’re actually going to stand with the little guy, because the little guy is that little guy or gal on that table fighting for life.”

Watch the vote here!


UPDATE on story by NRLC.org

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Senate today voted 53-44 to advance the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130) sponsored by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), but pro-abortion Democrats, in a near-party-line-vote, blocked the bill from receiving the 60 votes necessary to move forward (“invoke cloture”). The bill would extend federal legal protection to babies who are born alive during an abortion.

“Today we saw the extremism of the abortion industry’s agenda on full display,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “The 44 members of the United States Senate who voted against this bill now need to explain to their constituents why they believe abortion is such an absolute ‘right’ that it protects what amounts to infanticide: willfully withholding life-saving care from a born-alive infant.”

Documentation on the history of the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002 and related issues is available on the NRLC website at: www.nrlc.org/federal/bornaliveinfants

Sen. Whitney WesterfieldOn. Feb.15 Sen. Whitney Westerfied introduced a bill, SB 227, to protect infants born alive, a hot topic in our nation following the passage of very aggressive abortion legislation in New York. The text, in part, reads:

...to prohibit a person from denying or depriving an infant of nourishment with the intent to cause or allow the death of an infant; prohibit a person from denying or depriving an infant of medically appropriate and reasonable medical care, medical treatment, or surgical care; require a physician performing an abortion to take all medically appropriate and reasonable steps to preserve the life and health of a born alive infant...
