There soon may be no more Kentucky abortions because the last abortion facility in the state may soon close.
Kentucky abortions may soon be terminated. While Kentucky residents will be able to travel to other states, the last abortion facility is in court fighting for its existence.

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin said the EMW Women’s Surgical Center, located on West Market Street in Louisville, is failing to meet state health regulations.
The argument is over a transfer agreement. Those opposed say Bevin only wants to create more barriers for women seeking abortions. On Wednesday morning, attorneys for Bevin, the EMW Women’s Surgical Center and Planned Parenthood began to hash it out in court.
Brigitte Amiri, an attorney with the ACLU, said what’s at stake is whether Kentucky becomes the first state where abortion is banned. Earlier this year, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services tried to take the clinic’s license.
