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

(Written by Jerry Embry; taken from June newsletter)
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. ~Eccl. 3:1.  It's the end of school and graduations are taking place all over the community. And with that summer is upon us. Summer is a vibrant season full of life and many busy activities. This summer will be a busy one for RTLO. You will have ample opportunity to support RTLO and life this summer. Just look at all the exciting things that are coming.
For the month of June, The Crème Coffee House is hosting an art exhibit called Celebrate Life. You can stop by anytime during the month and see art from local artists. On Saturday, June 13 there will be an Art Show from 6:00pm-8:00pm and you will be given an opportunity to vote for your favorite pieces of art by making donations. We hope you will come out and Celebrate Life with us.

Look for RTLO at the following events this summer as well. Friday After Five, side-walk Chalk Day at our office, our annual Golf Scramble at Ben Hawes, the Owensboro Parent Birthday Bash, and our annual Walk for Life will wrap up the summer events. Please follow us on Facebook and check out our website at for more information on times and dates of upcoming events. And help us make this summer a season of life!
