About Us

Right to Life of Kern County is a nonprofit organization that offers education about life issues and promotes life-affirming alternatives to a society afflicted by the prevalence of legalized abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia. By engaging in public education and grassroots lobbying, we encourage the public and elected officials to uphold policies that protect life. We promote healing hope for anyone injured in heart, mind and body by participation in such attacks on innocent human life.

Nonpartisan and nonsectarian, we seek to effect cultural change to create an environment for life, working within the law to change the law.
