Last weekend we gathered at the Fiftieth Annual March for Life in Washington, DC, to remember and to thank God as we celebrated the wonderful blessing of Roe being overturned— a goal folks have marched for since 1974!
It was beautiful to see so many old friends and so many new faces. The number of young adults gathered to march was incredible and inspiring.
Many events in various places also celebrated the overturn of Roe. In Madison County a Day of LIFE Celebration was sponsored by the Pregnancy Help Center Medical Clinic. Among the speakers were Congressman Andy Barr and myself.
On January 23rd, the Kentucky Edition program on KET included a segment featuring our delegation to the March. It shows many good pictures and has commentary relating to opponents' views as well. Watch it here at about 19 minutes.
We will celebrate again soon— at the Celebrate Life Gala and Banquet in Lexington. Please RSVP and join us to hear Dr. Ben Carson on Thursday, March 2nd!

Across Kentucky, pro-lifers walked for Life this past weekend. Our slides are on this post and on the Walk Event page, too. Overall, our numbers showed that Kentucky right-to-lifers are tuned in.
In Louisville, Students for Life joined with students from Bellarmine University and Boyce College at the Walk for Life. Addia noted: “I can’t say enough about these amazing students. They are a joy to work with, to be in their presence — they are truly a sign of HOPE for the future. Thank you, as I have said many times, You are 25% of the population and 100% of the future!”
In Owensboro and Central Ky, Walks took place on Saturday; in Louisville it was Sunday. The rain in Louisville held off until 4 PM, the time the walk was to end!
We are grateful for those who came and to their sponsors for the financial lift to our organizations.Thank you to all!
Please join us at the Capitol on Monday, March 29, at 10:30 AM for a brief rally to encourage the Ky Senate to pass HB 91. This bill is Kentucky’s ProLife Constitutional Amendment which has already passed the House, and the Governor cannot veto it.
In numerous states (see important to know), abortion advocates have sued to overturn pro-life laws, and their respective Supreme Courts have “found” a right to abortion in their state constitution. This technique is how Roe v. Wade became our nation’s case law.
A number of states have passed constitutional amendments to protect their pro-life laws from such court decisions. (example)
Rep. Joe Fischer testified during a Senate committee hearing that HB 91 assures, “No Ky court will be able to fashion an implicit right to abortion from the language in our state constitution: there will be no Roe v. Wade decision in Ky. The regulation or elimination of abortion will be vested in the Ky General Assembly, not in the courts.” (Read more.) HB 91 ensures that it is the lawmakers of Ky who make the laws, not rogue judges.
Each year KRLA supporters Walk for Life to show that pro-lifers are Passionate and to provide operating funds for KRLA. The more people who walk, the larger the impact.
Each person asks for financial support and these donations add up to the largest fundraiser of the year for KRLA. This is how we remain as a nonprofit on a mission.
Will you walk with us? We will march down Shelbyville Road on Saturday, September 14, at 10 AM, starting from Trinity High School, 4011 Shelbyville Road in Louisville. Registration at 9 AM.
Never have walked for life? You will meet lots of friendly people! Please join us this year. More information.
