2022 SPRING/SUMMER NEWSLETTER
PREVIEW – Kentucky Makes the National News:
On April 14, 2022, Kentucky made national news when HB3, an omnibus abortion law, went into effect after the Kentucky legislature overrode Gov. Andy Beshear’s veto. This new law includes the following:
  • Bans abortions after 15 weeks
  • Mandates that abortion-inducing drugs can only be provided to a pregnant woman by a qualified licensed physician, essentially outlawing mail-order abortion drugs.
  • Requires abortionists to maintain local hospital privileges and be
    qualified to treat abortion complications.
  • Requires an abortionist to obtain written, notarized consent from a minor and one parent before that minor may have an abortion.
  • Requires that abortion facilities report abortions to Vital Statistics within three days, instead of 15 days or the end of the month.
  • Requires the reporting of chemical abortions within three days of dispensing the abortion drugs.
  • Provides for annual audits to ensure compliance with reporting requirements.
  • Requires aborted baby remains to be cremated or buried.

MARCH FOR LIFE

JANUARY 20, 2023

The March for Life is an inspiring, peaceful, vibrant, and joy-filled rally of women, men, young people, and children from all across the country. Every year, tens of thousands of pro-lifers converge on the National Mall and march on Capitol Hill on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling which legalized abortion in all 50 states. It’s the largest annual human rights demonstration in the world. But this is not just a protest… TOGETHER, WE GATHER TO CELEBRATE LIFE. We celebrate each and every life, from the moment of conception. We envision a world where every life is celebrated, valued, and protected.
