“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” – Galatians 6:9
Recently, the pro-life movement in our Commonwealth experienced a measure of disappointment with the defeat of the “Yes for Life “Amendment on November 8th. It is easy to become cynical and pessimistic when realizing how small the margin of defeat was on Amendment 2.
However, it is important to note the results of the election on November 8th, and realize not all is lost. In actuality, there is great encouragement that the pro-life side can glean from November 8th.
The reality is that the election outcomes are a shining light of hope for Kentucky. David Walls, Executive Director of The Family Foundation, summed it up this way in a recent interview, “Pro-life candidates who either have voting records and voted pro-life or ran on a pro-life platform had success in Kentucky up and down the ballot.”
Kentuckians have sent a clear pro-life message with their votes by sending their elected officials to Frankfort to represent their pro-life values. Consider these facts… All twenty-eight KY legislators who were in favor of the pro-life Amendment we re-elected, and close to half of the KY legislators who were not supportive of Amendment 2 were not elected. There is much to be encouraged about here in Kentucky moving forward in the fight to protect human life.
LET US PRAY…
Father, empower us with Your Spirit to never grow weary in our efforts to do good. Lord, help us to continue to be effective advocates for life here in our Commonwealth. Father, may the Kentucky legislature step up and pass many more pro-life measures in this coming legislative session. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
