Time to be ‘stockpiling metal coat hangers again;’ one abortion clinic left
If you live in Kentucky you have only one choice.
…the EMW Women’s Clinic in Lexington will close on January 27, thus leaving a clinic in Louisville as the only one in the state that will offer abortion services.
The clinic’s closing was announced by the Kentucky chapter of the National Organization of Women, which called the clinic “a permanent casualty of Kentucky’s governor, Matt Bevin.”
…Many women on the Kentucky chapter of NOW’s Facebook page expressed horror that they will have only one option for abortion services in their home state.
“I really hope I never get pregnant while living in this awful state,” wrote one woman. “I don’t know if I could get to Louisville. I might have to resort to extreme measures.”
“So much for small government,” wrote another one. “Yet we maintain the death penalty in our state. It … never has been about the sanctity of life and always about moralizing and controlling women’s sexuality and choices.”
Another woman put it even more succinctly and sarcastically asked, “So, why don’t we just start stockpiling metal coat hangers again?”
