Sidestepping the law for the abortion industry?

Fred Summe of Northern Kentucky Right to Life tells OneNewsNow that in 2016, former Governor Matt Bevin (R) ordered the downtown Louisville Planned Parenthood to stop doing abortions. He then filed a civil suit to accomplish it.

"They had not entered an agreement with a local hospital, which is required of all freestanding surgical centers whether they do abortions or not," Summe explains. "That's not an abortion law. This is a law that applies to all centers, and they were unable or unwilling to obtain an agreement with a local hospital."

The purpose of the measure is to ensure continuity of care between the abortion clinic and the hospital emergency room in cases of botched abortions or when unexpected complications arise.

"That's why those regulations are enforced against all freestanding surgical clinics, no matter what kind of surgery they do, is that somebody, a patient in distress, can be treated properly and quickly," Summe continues. "That, again, would be another exception we make for the abortion industry."

However, current Governor Andy Beshear (D), who is sold out to the abortion movement, has invited the Planned Parenthood to apply for a new license, and Summe believes that is because Gov. Beshear and Attorney General Daniel Cameron have found a way to circumvent the law and issue the clinic a license, making it one of only two child termination centers in the state.
