"All human life is a gift to be treasured"

Life

The Family Foundation affirms the inherent dignity of every human life, from conception until death. (See Human Dignity) Our purpose is to help build a culture of life, holding that all human life is a gift to be treasured. The life of every human being is an intrinsic good, not something whose value is conditional upon its usefulness to others or to the State.

No human being need prove his or her moral worth by demonstrating sentience, or self-awareness, or a certain level of cognitive ability. Neither scientific progress nor the desire to help others can justify sacrificing the life or inherent dignity of any human being. Every human, born or unborn, deserves the equal protection of the law.

Abortion

Few things touch on the sanctity of human life more than the practice of abortion. A pregnancy should not simply be “terminated” as if it were something impersonal and problematic; it cannot be without physical and emotional consequences. A child in the womb is distinct, developing, wholly human. Each time a mother decides or a father pressures to end such a life, it is a profound tragedy. Abortion harms the mother and deprives society of the gifts of the unborn.

Nevertheless, for decades our national and state laws have rarely recognized these truths. So, The Family Foundation works to present the intrinsic dignity of unborn human life and the costs of abortion to the public, lawmakers, and the courts. The U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, declaring abortion to be a constitutional “right,” was without foundation in the text of the Constitution and was thus wrongly decided. We look forward to the day when this grave error will be corrected.

If the absence of a heart beat indicates death, then what does the presence of a heart beat in the womb, 18 days after conception, indicate? The answer is LIFE!  That is HUMAN LIFE – most often, before the mother even knows she is pregnant.  A “termination of pregnancy” must be viewed by Kentucky government and by Kentucky citizens as what it really is, the termination of a LIFE.  Kentucky could be, and should be, a leading state in the effort to undo this wrong in America, and even in the world.
