Prolife Supporters Gathered in Frankfort to Support SB 3 & SB 802 Feb

Kentucky Right to Life sponsored its annual gathering in the Capitol Rotunda last week to support Senate Bill 3 defining conditions under which informed consent may be given and Senate Bill 8 requiring an ultrasound, but keeping it optional regarding whether or not the patient watches it.

Most Reverend Ronald W. Gainer, Bishop of the Diocese of LexingtonBishop Ronald W. Gainer, in one of his last acts before leaving Kentucky to serve in the Diocese of Harrisburg, opened with prayer and his insightful remarks. He closed with these words:

We are here at this rally to urge our elected representatives to use common sense and move beyond the pro-death catchphrases; to be open to the truth about what actually goes on when an abortion is performed.  We are here to urge our elected representatives to take an honest look at the reality of abortion and the tragic consequences for women and for society, as well as its deadly effects on the unborn child. We are here at this Kentucky Right to Life Rally to affirm publicly our commitment and our dedication to pray and to work to bring about a culture of love and life for the unborn and for their mothers. We can, we do and we must love them both.
