Lousiville, KY. (AP) — Former Gov. Matt Bevin’s administration denied a Planned Parenthood clinic in Lousiville a license to perform abortions in 2016. Now, Kentucky officials are inviting the clinic to apply for a license to legally perform abortions.
According to Associated Press, Hannah Brass Greer, chief legal counsel for Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, said in a statement, “Gov. Beshear’s administration recognized that our license had been wrongfully denied and that the previous administration didn’t follow the proper process.”
A letter from the state Cabinet for Health and Family Services said Planned Parenthood had complied with requirements to begin operation back in late 2015, meaning the abortions performed during a two-month period while Bevin was in office were not in violation of state law.
If the license is approved for the Louisville clinic, it would become only the second abortion provider in the state.
