Secretary of State Michael G. Adams, legislators and pro-life alliance members met on April 7th at the Capitol. The passage of HB 91 during the 2021 Regular Session was a major accomplishment for Ky’s pro-life future— time for a moment of celebration!
The pro-life alliance partners are (alpha order): Catholic Conference of Kentucky, Commonwealth Policy Center, the Kentucky Baptist Convention, Kentucky’s Family Foundation, Kentucky Right to Life and Sisters for Life.
We now turn to address the challenge of spreading the word to all Ky citizens. There is work ahead to explain and promote the importance of including HB 91 in the Ky Constitution.
Please take a moment to enjoy the Ceremonial Signing video here. The national media covered this event!

THANK YOU PRO-LIFERS for turning out for the YES for LIFE Rally in Frankfort! Lawmakers spoke, and they and their supporters heard from a coalition of pro-life organizations encouraging passage of HB 91. Rep. Joe Fischer, the bill's sponsor, is shown addressing the group.
HB 91 has been added to the Orders of the Day by the Senate! Stay tuned.
Attorney General Daniel Cameron joined the Rally unexpectedly with a surprise announcement that the Supreme Court has agreed to hear Ky’s appeal regarding Dismemberment Abortion. Read more about this Ky law here.
WHAS, WLKY and WDRB covered the YES for LIFE Rally and the AG’s announcement. More pro-life news was featured online about the passage of Nancy Tate’s HB 155 to allow the use of a “newborn safety device” for anonymous surrendering of a newborn, and of Sen. Ralph Alvarado’s SB 12 to prohibit sales of human organ or tissue and for-profit procurement of eye or cornea tissue.
