Should abortion clinics have the same rules as other medical facilities? According to a federal judge, the answer is no. Last week, Federal District Judge Greg Stivers struck down a Kentucky law that required abortion centers to have an agreement with hospitals and ambulance services in case there's an emergency. Kentucky's last remaining abortion center is EMW Women's Clinic in Louisville and they couldn't find a hospital that would enter an agreement with them which left them in violation of the state law. Now, the Bevin administration is appealing the ruling to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. They believe that the health and safety of women should be elevated above a presumed right to abortion. And their prospects of victory looks good since the same court upheld a similar Ohio law in 2016.
