Pro-Life Kentuckians hold annual Congressional Breakfast, Participate in March for Life, Rally in Louisville
Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell addressed the 150 pro-lifers from across the state who attended the annual Congressional Breakfast held in the Rayburn Office Building the day of the March for Life. Sen. McConnell said, “Our country may still be divided on the issue of life, but I believe we are gaining ground. Recent data shows that both the number and rate of abortions has dropped to an all-time low since 1973. That is good news.”
The Republican Minority Leader went on to say,” And much of the credit must go to you, the Movement, that has advocated relentlessly for a culture that respects the sanctity of life.”
Kentucky ‘s newest House member, Andy Barr (R—6th District), who defeated pro-abortion Ben Chandler in the November election, lauded the pro-lifers also for their dedication and determination. Rep. Barr assured them of his unequivocal support for all pro-life matters in the new Congress. Attendees also heard form Senator Rand Paul, Gary Bauer, and Olivia Gans Turner, founder of American Victims of Abortion.
In addition to the Congressional Breakfast, many pro-life Kentuckians came to the nation’s capital to participate in the March which drew a massive crowd.
Back home, Kentucky Right to Life ran a full-page ad in the state’s largest paper, the Louisville Courier-Journal, Sunday, January 20 that contained 2,000 names.
Pro-lifers also gathered in Louisville on January 22 in somber commemoration of the deaths of over 55 million unborn babies.
