Defend State’s Final Abortion Clinic From Being Shut Down

Target: Matt Bevin, Governor of Kentucky

Goal: Preserve women’s bodily autonomy by allowing the last remaining abortion clinic in Kentucky to stay open.

Matt Bevin, governor of Kentucky, has decided that controlling women’s bodies and choices should be his decision and has tried to close every clinic offering abortions in the state. Since becoming governor, Bevin has filed lawsuits against abortion clinics in his state and shut them down so that Kentucky women have no choice when it comes to their pregnancy unless they go to another state. This ultimately leaves poor and young women at the biggest disadvantage. Now only one sole abortion clinic remains in the entire 4.4 million person state.

The EMW Women’s Surgical Center is the final abortion provider, and Bevin is attempting to shut it down with an unjust lawsuit. Kentucky legislators recently passed bills banning abortion after 20 weeks with no exceptions for rape or incest, forcing doctors to give pregnant women ultrasounds before getting an abortion and requiring those women to receive counseling to convince them to not get an abortion.

Women deserve the right to choose what to do when they’re pregnant, but women in Kentucky may soon be stripped of these rights. Demand the governor end his battle against women and allow this abortion clinic to remain open so women have a choice.


Dear Governor Bevin,

You’ve been on a crusade to severely limit women’s rights even though this is supposed to be the land of the free. You’ve allowed your personal stance against abortion to guide policies and legislation that harm the women of Kentucky by robbing them of bodily autonomy. Thinking that you have the right to make decisions for women is abhorrent and you should be ashamed of yourself.

If you truly want to represent the women of Kentucky, you will at least give them one remaining place in your state that they can make a choice about their lives and their bodies. I demand you drop your fight against closing the EMW Women’s Surgical Center and let women have bodily autonomy.

  1. Sorry, not signing this petition.
    Planned Parenthood and the medical industry have very cleverly sold abortion to women as being a matter of “the woman’s choice” and “the woman’s body”. The major issue, though, is not the woman, but the baby. The issue is – What are we going to do with this unwanted baby? Do we keep the baby or kill the baby?
    Abortion is actually the gruesome murder of a baby boy or girl who is unwanted.
    I urge people to do their own research and find out how babies are actually aborted. What happens to the baby? Who profits? What are the possible complications? And read/watch testimonies of former abortionists. Thank you.
