Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andy Beshear received a big bipartisan boost on Monday with the endorsement from a longtime state legislator.
Republican state Sen. Dan Seum, of Fairdale, bucked the GOP to endorse Beshear, the state's attorney general, over incumbent Matt Bevin in the upcoming Kentucky gubernatorial election…
Lines are being drawn. If we are pro-life, we must vote that way. There are fewer than 100 days to the General Election. Our pro-life progress of the past several years depends on re-electing Governor Bevin. Be proud of this staunch defender of innocent human life. Your vote counts!
Not all qualified voters can get to the polls, so it is important to think of pro-life voters who may need encouragement to get an absentee ballot. EVERY VOTE WILL COUNT in the November General Election.
Many of us have elderly family or friends who need help to vote. The rules for obtaining an absentee ballot and either mailing it in or voting in-person ahead of the election, are here.
June 4 is a candidate filing deadline for petitions (etc). Perhaps October 1 would be a good day to mark on your calendar. That way, you won’t forget.
Also, the deadline to register to vote is October 7. Keep your eyes open for anyone who is pro-life and not yet registered!
Congratulations to Governor Bevin and running mate Ralph Alvarado, Secretary of State candidate Michael Adams, Attorney General contender Daniel Cameron, and Commissioner of Agriculture Ryan Quarles.
We must all ask ourselves: How can we help the Republicans win in November? Think of any who did not vote yesterday. Ask them why. Explain what is at stake. Urge them to vote.
The KRLA PAC will be active to support your efforts.
Our endorsed candidate for AG, Wil Schroder, made a great showing and we look for him to succeed in future state races.
The American Nurses Association (ANA) currently holds a position IN OPPOSITION TO Assisted Suicide. A draft position statement CHANGES that. The ANA is asking for public comment from nurses. If the proposed change is adopted, nurses would be required to assist patients in ending their lives or to write a referral to someone who would. There would be NO OPT-OUT privilege. For more information, see here.

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.”
