Kentucky sues second abortion clinic in state
Abortion clinic owners in Kentucky are learning they might face hefty fines for not complying with state laws.
Last month, Kentucky sued the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Louisville for doing at least 23 abortions without a license. Margie Montgomery of the Kentucky Right to Life Association tells OneNewsNow that’s not the only abortion clinic facing accusations.
“We are horrified to learn that the one clinic operating in Lexington has been doing so without a license or the required emergency transfer agreement,” she says.
An emergency transfer agreement is meant to make sure patients suffering serious complications can be transferred to a hospital for treatment.
In addition to not having a license, EMW Women’s Clinic in Lexington was found to be unsanitary, drugs on hand were outdated by as much as two decades, and the clinic had not been inspected for ten years.
“Of course we would prefer that the patient would choose a positive solution to the unplanned pregnancy that the woman has,” Montgomery says. “But if not, she should still be treated with sanitary conditions and anything that would protect her and protect her unborn child.”
The state has sued EMW asking the court to levy fines of $10,000 per day per violation.
