Kentucky Governor Orders Closing Of LAST Abortion Clinic In State

The last abortion clinic in Kentucky is set to be closed after Governor Matt Bevin ordered that it ceases business. WPSD News 6 reports the American Civil Liberties Union announced Wednesday that it filed a lawsuit on behalf of the EMW Women’s Clinic, an abortion facility in Louisville, to challenge the state’s actions.

Bevin’s administration has been on a mission to rid the state of abortion facilities. They shut down another EMW abortion facility in Lexington last year after state officials caught it masquerading as a doctor’s office and performing abortions without a license. State health investigators also found unsanitary conditions inside the facility.
