The Louisville chapter of KRLA was Kentucky’s first. Does anyone recall its first office building on Willis Ave. in St. Matthews?
The group has staged a January 22nd Rally (over too many years to count) to commemorate the lives lost since the 1973 Roe v. Wade legal decision. These now number 61+ million.
This year the Rally will also mark the chapter’s golden anniversary. All are invited! Speakers include Attorney Bob Heleringer, Metro Councilman Robin Engel, Aundria McClain, Sisters for Life, and Margie Montgomery, founder and executive director of Louisville RTL and KRLA.
A special flyer was created to feature photos and news clips from the past. The flyer reports on the earliest days of the Louisville voice for the voiceless, and provides background on how Roe v. Wade became law despite the states’ opposition to abortion on demand.
Click here for the flyer and all the details. Why not download the flyer and send it to friends? We hope to see a huge crowd at the 2020 Rally!
UPDATE on January 16, 2020
Deadline to add your name was Jan. 14. We still welcome your contribution to help pay for the media space!
Each year at this time we step out on a limb to buy a FULL-PAGE AD in the statewide edition of the Courier-Journal. The reason is to commemorate the Jan. 22, 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that opened the floodgates to abortion in America. The ad features as many pro-lifers’ names as we can get, along with a message and image to provoke thinking about abortion.
Please be part of this important message to Kentucky. We will add your name or family names to the “signature” ad. We request $5 from individuals, couples or families to support the expensive media outreach. Please sign now and pay online or send a check: 134 Breckinridge Lane, Louisville, KY 40207.
The ad will run on Sunday, Jan. 19. We want your JOHN HANCOCK!
Numerous well-wishers, some pictured below, stopped in to the Right to Life office on December 30 to wish John Graham well in his retirement. He is pictured in the center of the photo.
John joined Right to Life of Louisville and KRLA in February 1994. He has served the RTL Educational Foundation of Kentucky, KRLA, Louisville RTL, and all people and needs of the local office in Louisville.
He and his wife, Jeanne, are retiring in Elizabethtown, near their children and grandchildren.
Thank you, John, for your devoted and kind service over so many years.

On Jan. 25, a 31-year-old Arabic woman hemorrhaged at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Austin, Texas, following her botched abortion. But when an employee phoned 911 for the ambulance, she downplayed the severity of the excessive bleeding. Adding insult to injury, the caller requested no sirens, leaving one to wonder: Was the clinic’s reputation more important than the victim of this bungled procedure? Without a “medical emergency” designation, ambulance personnel could have been delayed by traffic, which could have resulted in the woman’s death.
Unbeknownst to the public, cases such as this are quite common. Abortion simply isn’t the safe procedure its supporters like to say It is. Abortion clinic transfer agreements with local hospitals are necessary to protect women and to save lives.
Lawmakers across the country who have acted on documented proof showing 227 abortion facilities in 32 states between 2008 and 2016 have been responsible for 1,400 health and safety deficiencies, should be commended, not condemned for looking out for the women of this nation!
A quick online check of just about any state of the union will find a pattern of abuse — a snapshot, if you will — showing an industry fighting to keep profits high and standards low. Just a few examples -- Read more.
