LOUISVILLE – Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) announced today that its Louisville Health Center will now provide abortion services. This week, PPINK received the provisional license from the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS), allowing the Louisville Health Center to offer a full range of reproductive health care, including abortion. Patients will be able to access abortion in March 2020. 

 Statement from Chris Charbonneau, CEO of PPINK:

 “Kentucky has gone from one abortion provider to two, which is a significant win for reproductive health care in the state. Abortion access in Kentucky and across the country is at great risk, so while this is a step forward, the fight is far from over. We are glad to see the Cabinet for Health and Family Services follow the law and grant PPINK a provisional license because we met the requirements. All people in Kentucky deserve to make their own pregnancy decisions and to have access to safe and legal abortion. 

“Abortion is health care, and this license underscores the importance of elected officials who will champion reproductive health care issues and uphold Roe v. Wade. The majority of Kentuckians say they want increased access to care; since 1932 Planned Parenthood has provided reproductive care in Kentucky. We are still here. We are committed to increasing care across the commonwealth.

“In January, CHFS rescinded the denial of PPINK’s license application, and the case brought against PPINK regarding the license was dismissed. The lawsuit filed under the previous administration was a blatant attack against reproductive rights and made no attempt to follow proper protocols and procedures.”
