A federal judge struck down a Kentucky law on Friday that would have threatened the last abortion clinic in the state.
U.S. District Judge Greg Stivers awarded a major victory for the EMW Women’s Surgical Center in Louisville, the Associated Press reported on Friday. The center is the state’s last abortion clinic, the outlet noted.
The article goes on to state the following:
Stivers rejected a law from more than 20 years ago which required abortion clinics in Kentucky to have written “transfer agreements” with a hospital and ambulance services available in case of a medical emergency.
The judge found the two-decades old rule to be a violation of women’s constitutional right to an abortion, the AP reported.
