Yesterday, Representative Lindsey Burke (D-Lexington) and the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, announced the filing of additional pro-abortion bills (HB 428 & 429) that would seek to re-legalize abortion in Kentucky and promote abortion trafficking by helping facilitate the killing of preborn Kentuckians outside of Kentucky. This comes after Sen. David Yates (D-Louisville), with the support of Governor Andy Beshear (D), filed SB 99 earlier this session to re-legalize certain abortions and further confuse the public’s understanding of abortion.
The Family Foundation joins with numerous pro-life leaders, and with the record crowd that gathered for the Kentucky March for Life last week, in calling for Kentucky to move forward, not backwards, in building a culture that “Loves Them Both” – by protecting mothers and their preborn children.
Statement from David Walls, executive director of The Family Foundation:
“Kentucky must continue to chart a path forward by building a compassionate culture of life that values both mother and child. The calls by the pro-abortion industry to re-legalize killing unborn children and move Kentucky backwards in protecting human rights should be flatly rejected.
“I am thankful that the strong, pro-life majorities in the General Assembly are actively working to move Kentucky forward with pro-life policies that provide support for babies, moms, and families,” Walls concluded.
The Family Foundation is actively engaged in education efforts and advocacy for pro-life and pro-family policies in the 2024 General Assembly that seek to uphold human dignity, support mothers, and create of culture of life.
