Kentucky’s most notorious and longest standing abortion mill building is up for sale. While there is more work to be done to restore Kentucky’s culture of life, this is an important milestone to celebrate.
EMW had served as the Commonwealth’s primary abortion clinic since 1981. Shamefully, its false claims about pregnancy and personhood lured tens of thousands of desperate women from a six-state region, then robbed them of their motherhood behind closed doors.
Unfortunately, thousands and thousands of preborn children were killed in the womb at EMW Women’s Surgical Center (EMW), and their mothers robbed of motherhood, while the U.S. Supreme Court’s unjust and egregiously wrong decision in Roe v. Wade prevented the Commonwealth from protecting life.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade on June 24, 2022 activated Kentucky’s pro-life trigger law, making it illegal to kill a preborn human child in the Commonwealth (with exceptions for the mother’s life and health) and causing the closure of EMW and other abortion mills in the Commonwealth. In fact, Kentucky became the first state in the nation to stop scheduling abortions after Roe was overturned.
With the closure of EMW, we rejoice at the closure of a death mill that ended the lives of far too many.
We give thanks for the faithful advocates for life that tirelessly stood up for human dignity on the sidewalks, in the halls of Frankfort, in the courtroom, and throughout the Commonwealth.
We acknowledge that there is more to be done.
We renew our commitment to restoring a culture of life within the Commonwealth.
