Bevin Administration files suit to stop unlicensed abortion clinic

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – After a CHFS inspector allegedly found unsanitary conditions and expired medication, the Governor’s Office announced on March 3 that a lawsuit had been filed against Eubanks & Marshall of Lexington.

According to the Bevin administration, the suit will prohibit it from operating the facility, where it has been performing abortions without a license and a required Ambulance emergency transfer agreement.

“Last month it was brought to our attention that EMW in Lexington is operating without a license,” said CHFS Secretary Vickie Yates Glisson. “Our inspectors visited the location and confirmed that EMW is unlicensed and does not have the required ambulance transfer agreement in place to protect women in the case of emergency. Furthermore, the inspector found the facility in an unsanitary condition. Regrettably, the location had not been inspected since 2006. There are laws in place to protect our citizens, and we will ensure the laws are upheld.”

The complaint claims that, while the clinic did have a transfer agreement with the hospital, they did not have one with an ambulance service. It claimed the clinic dialed 911 if an emergency occurred.
