Biographical / Historical

After coming together in 1989 as a direct result of the U.S. Supreme Court's Webster vs. Reproductive Health Services decision, the 28 member organization had strong and active participation from state affiliate groups. The Pro-Choice Coalition of Kentucky (PCCK) was an umbrella group which rallied to protect the reproductive rights of Kentucky women with help from groups such as the American Association of University Women, the American Civil Liberties Union, Business and Professional Women, and the League of Women Voters, the National Council of Jewish Women, the National Organization for Women, the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, Planned Parenthood, and many others.

The PCCK had active participation in the Kentucky legislation where women's rights have been viewed as a secondary issue, leaving reproductive rights at the bottom of the Kentucky Legislature's priority list. The Coalition's member organizations provided volunteers who traveled to the capitol frequently to meet with legislators to discuss strategies. The Pro-Choice Coalition of Kentucky disbanded in 2005 due to organizational issues.
