Kentucky’s last abortion clinic fights to keep its doors open


Protester: in the city of Charlotte, six days
a week babies are butchered and murdered. In any other doctor’s office this would not
be tolerated. These people can come out here and shame and
intimidate and harass women. It’s going to the doctor. It should be normal. Potester: The bible demands us to love our
neighbor as ourself. Young lady, having your baby murdered this
morning is not loving. Really in a sense what it always is just to
be with them, to accompany them on this little bitty piece of the journey for what it takes
to get an abortion in Kentucky. These are old, probably from the early 70s. Oh I knew when Bevin became governor, I knew that they would come up with
everything they possibly could. The voters of Kentucky have been heard, and they want a new direction
for the commonwealth of Kentucky. Tonight, for the first time in almost 100
years, we can say Republicans are the new majority in the Kentucky House of Representatives! For the first time in state history, the governor,
the state senate and the state house of representatives are all controlled by the republican party. Within two hours of gaveling in to start the
legislative session, there were two pieces of anti abortion legislation that were filed. They were passed by the legislature on Saturday
and we filed suit the following Monday. In the midst of that litigation, the state
challenged a couple of transfer agreements that the clinic had on file claiming that
there are technical deficiencies. Those deficiencies needed to be fixed or else
the license would be revoked. A transfer agreement just means that the hospital
has agreed that it will accept your patient. The hospital is going to accept our patient regardless. And the ambulance agreement is that we have to have a, actually have a contract with an ambulance. None of that is necessary. Anytime anybody needs an ambulance what do
you do? You call 911, duh! We’re challenging the constitutionality of
the law. The most recent abortion case that made its
way up to the Supreme Court dictates how courts should be dealing with these types of laws. Unless you can prove that there’s a benefit
to women’s health and that that benefit is not outweighed by the burden of placing these
laws on abortion providers unless you can do that, the laws must be struck down. Protester: We are at the EMW women’s surgical
center and what a lie that name is, what kind of surgery are these women seeking? This is an attempt to shut down the last remaining
abortion provider and therefore ban abortion in the state of Kentucky. And if EMW can’t operate, Kentucky would have
no abortion clinic. There would be no place in the state where
women can receive elective abortions. That’s an incredible burden. It would be catastrophic to women and to their
families and to everyone in Kentucky. When EMW was under threat of closure, I think
it was something that sent shock waves through this community, this state. People’s lives are at stake. It would certainly be a chill wind blowing
throughout this nation because the history is, when one goes, then others start falling. And so EMW will fight til the end to be able
to continue to provide abortion services. And I know that every other clinic in every
other state will do that too.
