In many previous posts we have carefully explained why it is not possible for any abortion clinic in Kentucky to be licensed unless it has Transfer Agreements. Nevertheless, the law that mandates this has been ignored.
For a time we were not sure that Planned Parenthood was doing abortions even though we knew they had been issued an illegal license, but we recently learned a person seeking an abortion had been scheduled there to have one. So, we are assuming that Kentucky now has two abortion clinics.
Though Gov. Beshear has mandated that all elective medical procedures cease, about 380 abortions have been performed this month at the EMW clinic. How many at PP? Who knows?
Attorney General Daniel Cameron is on the move to enforce protection for abortion clinic workers and their clients. But based on media reports of Planned Parenthood and ACLU-led push-back against this common sense initiative in other states, it is likely Cameron's challenge will be opposed.
We urge all pro-lifers to send a message to our AG to encourage him in this fight and to show appreciation. He has shown great leadership for us, and we need to show great support for him.
Based on former AG Beshear challenging Gov. Bevin in court, it was established by Kentucky’s Supreme Court that the AG can sue the Governor. The Court wrote:
“It is certainly in ‘the interest of all the people’ that there be no unconstitutional or illegal governmental conduct.” The Court analyzed the supremacy of the Attorney General as the chief law officer of the Commonwealth, and found that he has broad authority to sue for declaratory and injunctive relief against state actors, including the Governor, whose actions he believes are illegal or unconstitutional.
Though we do not look for AG Cameron to be ‘litigious’ we know he is committed to protect human life in all its stages.
