2022: Amid year of historic victories and disappointing setbacks, we must boldly stand

With the 2023 session upon us, we have a great opportunity to stand for Kentucky families and the Biblical values that make them strong.

There is no doubt that 2022 has been a year of historic victories and disappointing setbacks.

While we are certainly disappointed in the close defeat of pro-life Amendment 2 on November 8, pro-life Kentuckians must remain steadfast in our resolve to continue fighting for the unborn and defending Kentucky’s pro-life laws that continue to save lives.

One of the big silver linings from the election is that pro-life majorities in the General Assembly have grown even larger, with pro-life candidates having success up and down the ballot across Kentucky. I encourage you to join us in praying for the Kentucky Supreme Court as they consider the abortionists’ challenge to our pro-life laws – a decision will likely come before year’s end!

In spite of setbacks, I continue to thank the Lord for the victories won during these last 12 months, including:

– Two historic legal victories at the U.S. Supreme Court with Roe v. Wade being overturned and Coach Kennedy winning a huge victory for religious freedom. The Family Foundation was proud to have joined legal briefs in both cases.

– Most successful legislative session in years, passing our top 3 legislative priorities – the Save Women’s Sports Act, Church is Essential Act, and pro-life Humanity in Health Care Act.

With the 2023 session almost upon us, we have a great opportunity to make further progress for Kentucky families, including strengthening parental rights and stopping evil transgender mutilation surgeries and hormone experiments on children.

These are two top issues that the General Assembly needs to address in 2023.

We must also boldly counter those that will want to retreat from saving every unborn life and defending marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The Family Foundation will continue to educate and advocate boldly for God-honoring policies, grounded in Biblical truth, no matter how the wind of public opinion blows!

Thank you for your faithful support, prayers, and engagement which have made a tremendous impact this year. No doubt, 2023 is poised to be another monumental year for keeping our Kentucky values strong.
