In addition to Kathryn’s expertise, she also brings a passion for Human Coalition’s mission – fueled by her personal connection to abortion.
Growing up, Kathryn’s mother told her and her sister that they could have had a brother, but stopped short of revealing what happened to the child. It was only a few years prior to her passing in December of 2020 that she shared with Kathryn that she had an abortion. Even after more than 60 years, her mother still expressed grief and sadness over the decision – a decision that she was forced to make.
Today, Kathryn is proud to honor her mother’s memory and her brother who did not receive the chance at life outside the womb through her work at Human Coalition.
Kathryn resides in Little Elm, Texas with her husband Larry King and their faithful companion Wrangler.
