schu montgomeryThe abortion distortion has dominated the pages of local newspapers and major TV outlets ever since the U. S. Supreme Court handed down its infamous Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions in 1973.

Even today, there are still “journalists” who erroneously report that abortion is legalized only in the first three months of pregnancy. Yet, despite an eventual nation-wide ban on the grisly Partial Birth Abortion procedure in 2003, a method that killed an estimated 5,000 babies a year, eight states and Washington, D.C. still permit abortion up until birth for any reason (Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Vermont, and New York).

The Southwestern Women’s Options clinic in Albuquerque, N.M., for instance, known as the Late-Term Abortion Capital of America, kills babies at 37-weeks gestation through poisonous injection. Within days, the unborn child suffers a heart attack. The woman is charged a staggering $17,000 for this third trimester procedure.

Recently, C-J opinion writer Kim Greene distorted the findings of her own Planned Parenthood-commissioned poll, saying it showed support for legalized abortion in Kentucky. That’s simply not the case. Numbers from that poll, as reported in a C-J story published on August 9, 2019, actually shows “18% said they believe all abortions should be illegal – though another 37% said abortion should be allowed only in ‘extreme cases’ such as for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest or to save the life of the woman.”

While 98% of abortions are performed in the U. S. for social reasons— not life of the mother or rape and incest— it is indeed a stretch, actually a distortion, for Greene to conclude that Kentuckians favor abortion.

The numbers simply don’t add up. The 18% who favor banning abortion added to the 37% who would only permit abortion in the very rare cases of life of the mother and rape/incest equals 55%. The last time I looked 55% is a majority. Therefore, PP’s very own poll shows a majority of Kentuckians (the 500 Democrats, Republicans, and Independents queried) do, in fact, reject abortion on demand!

But even if the numbers recorded otherwise, which they don’t — morality, objective truth, and irrefutable scientific evidence all point to the urgency to restore the right to life to unborn children.

In Kentucky, there is only one abortion clinic left! If abortions were so popular, why then are we– who love and cherish innocent human life and who believe women deserve better than the “right” to kill preborn children– witnessing the last gasp of a diabolical abortion industry, and the continuing renaissance of crisis pregnancy centers, who offer real and effective pre-natal and postpartum care to women facing unplanned pregnancies.

We laud Kentucky lawmakers and Governor Matt Bevin for fighting for life and passing pro-life measures, while defending them aggressively in the courts (something Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andy Beshear has refused to do as the Commonwealth’s Attorney General).

In May, the federal Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati upheld Kentucky’s Ultrasound Law! Thanks to President Trump’s recent appointments to that court and the courage of a majority of state lawmakers and Governor Bevin, who passed and signed into law that life-affirming measure, women will now have the opportunity to view the ultrasound and, consequently, heart beat of their unborn child prior to an abortion!

Governor Bevin and Kentucky lawmakers have been honoring their civic and constitutional responsibilities through their pro-life convictions and actions. In the words of Thomas Jefferson, “The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government.”

Even amid the languid dog days of summer, killing unborn children doesn’t subside. Here in Kentucky, dismemberment abortions, otherwise known as D&E occur more than 500 times each year.

Attempts by pro-abortionists to destigmatize dilation and evacuation and other barbaric methods of abortion are utterly shameful in a sound and civilized society. Kentucky lawmakers passed a ban on D&E, but a federal judge blocked the effort.

The once Democrat mantra of keeping abortion “safe, legal, and rare,” has been replaced with a radical insistence that abortion be permitted up to birth (even at taxpayers’ expense), while simultaneously refusing to mandate that infant survivors of botched abortions be afforded medical care to save their young lives.

Still, these massive killings are draped in euphemisms like “choice,” “right” or “reproductive freedom” (every bit a misnomer). The American public, however, isn’t buying such subterfuge. The latest Gallup poll (May 2019) has 60% of Americans wanting all (21%) or almost all (39%) abortions made illegal.

“All we are saying is give LIFE a chance!”

schu montgomeryEchoes from a bygone anthem (“Give PEACE a chance”) reverberate through many a state capitol rotunda these days as the quest for peace —peace in the womb— grows ever louder.Once the safest place for an unborn child, a mother’s womb has too often become the killing fields.

Our astute Gov. Matt Bevin articulately stated on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight recently that the reason a flurry of legislatures and governors have stepped up their defense of innocent human life with bills challenging Roe v. Wade is because “people are appropriately outraged” that whole “generations of children” are being wiped out — all in the name of “reproductive freedom” or “choice” (certainly misnomers for those hellbent on annihilating little ones in the womb).

More than 60 million preborn babies have lost their lives since Roe’s companion case, Doe v. Bolton, stripped the states (and, therefore, the people) from protecting the preborn during all nine months of a woman’s pregnancy for reasons of “health,” not medical necessity. “Health,” the court so broadly mandated must include the “physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age.”

"With the insanity coming out of New York and Virginia … where you got lawmakers and governors basically advocating and celebrating abortion on demand, the country needs to know that there are still some sane people In this world in public office,” said Mississippi State Sen. Angela Hill. Mississippi has joined Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, and most recently, Missouri, among others before this year, in passing heartbeat bills. Read more.

schu montgomeryHundreds of thousands of hard-working Kentuckians who still uphold the sanctity of life and dream of the day when our government returns to protecting the preborn commend Gov. Matt Bevin and the Kentucky General Assembly for doing all they can to save the lives of unborn children and spare women from a lifetime of psychological and emotional pain, not to mention serious health risks, that do result from abortion.

Kim Greene, a board member at Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc., and other abortion supporters refuse to acknowledge the undeniable fact that every abortion tears apart or poisons a preborn child and is, therefore, inhumane and unjust. Read more.

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.
