FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 15, 2016) – Below is a statement from Gov. Matt Bevin on today’s Kentucky Court of Appeals ruling in favor of the Bevin Administration in its lawsuit against Eubanks & Marshall of Lexington, P.S.C. to prohibit it from operating an unlicensed abortion facility.
“Today marks an important victory for the rule of law in Kentucky. We are pleased by the Court’s recognition that an unlicensed abortion clinic is prohibited from performing abortions. This has been our administration’s stance from the beginning. This is the right and necessary ruling to ensure that the health and safety of women are protected.”
As the order states, “long before the Cabinet initiated this suit, the Commonwealth, through its elected representatives, determined that all abortion facilities should be licensed.”
