Kentucky Governor Wants to SMASH Planned Parenthood

By Published on January 30, 2016

Republican Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has announced big plans to take on Planned Parenthood in his state.

Bevin said Thursday that he had learned Planned Parenthood was knowingly doing abortions without a license, and that he intended to make them pay.

“It’s that brazen disregard for the law that is going to be hammered down,” Bevin told a group of reporters. “There is no tolerance whatsoever for people in the commonwealth of Kentucky disregarding the law. They are unlicensed, they are doing it knowingly, and they are going to be brought to justice on this front.”

Planned Parenthood opened a clinic in Louisville and began performing abortions Jan. 21.

Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky applied for an abortion facility license and commenced services under the guidance of the Office of the Inspector General, the state office that is responsible for licensing health facilities,” Maureen Manier, spokeswoman of Planned Parenthood Indiana and Kentucky, told WDRB in response to the accusations. They’ve largely been silent on the Bevin’s comments.

The new Planned Parenthood clinic is reportedly the third in the state.

“They are following exactly what they were told to do by the state and for him to say that I have no doubt that he is opposed to abortion or anti-choice,” Kentucky State Representative Mary Lou Marzian told WHAS11.
