Kentucky May Become the First Abortion-Free State

Once upon a time Democrats reflexively couched their pro-choice rhetoric in terms of abortion being ‘safe and legal and rare’.

But, as recent investigative films have proven, it’s neither safe for the baby nor the mother and it’s certainly not rare.

Nowadays the most rabid pro-aborts pine for abortion any time, anywhere, and for any reason.

But all of that is quickly coming to a change as even the most hardened pro-choicers come to grips with the grim reality of the butchery-for-bucks industry that is run by Planned Parenthood and their ilk.

And in Kentucky it may come to an abrupt halt.

Nearly ten years ago the state passed regulations requiring abortion clinics to have admittance agreements with nearby emergency rooms in the event an abortion goes south and the mother needs to be rush to the hospital.

Abortion proponents argue they need an exemption.

And that fight is coming to a head this week in court.

If the last abortion clinic in the state loses the fight, the state will become the first in the nation without a single abortuary.

Kentucky’s ongoing quest to rid the state of surgical abortion clinics may come to a successful end, pending a court battle starting Wednesday goes the way Kentucky’s anti-abortion Gov. Matt Bevin wants it to.

If the clinic is shut down, Kentucky would be the first state in the nation without legal abortion.

According to AP, The licensing fight began in March when EMW Women’s Surgical Center refused to comply with state regulations enacted in 1998 that required it to have an agreement with a hospital and ambulance service to treat patients in the event of a medical emergency.

“[The requirements] are important measures for ensuring women have the proper life-saving procedures in place in the event of an emergency,” said Bevin’s spokeswoman Amanda Stamper. “Essentially all health-care facilities in Kentucky are required to have such agreements, and it is telling that the abortion industry believes that it alone should be exempt.”
