Why does RTLO exist? The purpose for which RTLO is organized is to encourage among the general public an understanding of the dignity and worth of each human life, whatever his or her state or circumstances; to foster respect for human life before and after birth, particularly for the defenseless, the incompetent, the impaired and the incapacitated; to promote and encourage passage of amendatory and statutory measures which will provide protection and support for human life. Included in the protection and support are unborn children who are endangered by those birth control methods, commonly referred to as contraceptives, which are abortifacients in whole or part.

Letter from the President

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. ~Eccl. 3:1 At the beginning of a brand new year, it is helpful to remember this verse from the Bible. We look back and see all the blessings, hard work, successes, and progress made in our fight to restore the sanctity of human life. But we cannot rest on past victories. As we enter this new year it is a time to press forward with renewed energy and determination to continue to educate everyone on their God-given intrinsic value.

A time to be born, and a time to die is the next verse in Ecclesiastes chapter 3. Unfortunately, in abortion those times are often within moments of one another. We realize things happen that cut young lives short and this a tragedy. But what's worse is when the adults decide this young life should end before it has hardly begun.

Looking forward into 2016 we are encouraged by a newly elected pro-life governor in Kentucky. The presidential race will begin to heat up and it will become clear that it is very important to vote for pro-life candidates. In the meantime, RTLO will continue to promote the value of human life in our community. We will not rely on empty rhetoric but use the truth of science and the truth of faith. The darkness of ignorance cannot be overcome by hate. Only truth and love can do that. With God's leading and your help, we will do just that. Help us light up the darkness.

Happy New Year,
Jerry Embry
President, RTLO
