ABOUT US - PRO-LIFE KENTUCKY
Madison County Right to Life was formed in 2003 as a non-denominational, non-profit organization. Since its inception, Madison County Right to Life has worked to increase awareness of the sanctity of life in the Madison County area by:
- publishing an annual signature ad in the Richmond Register and Berea Citizen.
- erecting a billboard on I-75. (see video)
- sending newsletters to our members and local churches.

- peacefully praying at our annual Life Chain held every October in Richmond across from the EKU football stadium between the hospital and fire station.
Madison County Right to Life is affiliated with National Right to Life and Kentucky Right to Life. We collaborate with Central Kentucky Right to Life in Lexington to spread the message of life with our billboard on I-75.
