Gov. Andy Beshear didn’t take long after his reelection to continue campaigning for his pro-abortion policies. At a press conference last Wednesday, he called Kentucky’s abortion ban “the most extreme,” and called upon the legislature to implement exceptions of rape and incest. What many fail to see is that while difficult circumstances of conception may be horrific, the child is still innocent, and it is human. Instead of focusing on the child, the focus has been placed on the situation of the mother. Brittanie Bogard is a real life example of a baby who was conceived in rape, and is a strong and courageous pro-life advocate. A compassionate people stands with vulnerable life, even those conceived in traumatic circumstances.
