Read This! Kentucky’s Last Abortion Clinic Sues State to Stay Open

Kentucky's last abortion provider is suing the state to stay open.

The EMW Women's Surgical Center in Louisville claims in a federal lawsuit that Gov. Matt Bevin's administration informed them "out of the blue" that the clinic was not in compliance with state rules and ordered them to stop performing abortions starting Monday, April 3.

an abortion facility maintain agreements with a local hospital and ambulance company to transfer patients in the rare event of an emergency.
Caller: Hello, 911? This is EMW Woman's Surgical Center. We've got a D&C patient here and she's experiencing severe uterine hemorrhaging.
911 Operator: Okay, what is your registered ambulance company?
Caller: What?! Just call the nearest service.
911 Operator: What do you think? You can just call 911 with a medical emergency and get an ambulance to your location? *sigh*
Caller: Please, just get an ambulance here.
911 Operator: I can issue you a provisional certificate for now, but you need to register. What hospital will you be sending her to?
Caller: Louisville.
911 Operator: Okay, what is your pre-clearance registration number?
Caller: My what?
911 Operator: Ma'am, do you have any idea how 911 works? You seem to think it is some single source provider for emergency information and services.
