Kentucky is on its way to becoming the first abortion-free state in the United States, LifeNews reports. Only one abortion facility is left in the entire state, and officials say that it is not adequately equipped for patient emergency situations. Gov. Matt Bevin has said that he is “unapologetically pro-life,” and has taken it upon himself to ensure Kentuck stands for life.
“This administration will have no tolerance for the type of brazen disregard that Planned Parenthood has shown for both the safety of women and the rule of law,” Bevin said last year. “We will hold Planned Parenthood accountable for knowingly endangering their patients by providing illegal abortions at a facility that was not properly licensed nor prepared to handle an emergency.”
