In the last 299 days, there have been no abortions in Commonwealth of Kentucky — except when medically necessary to protect the life of the mother.
Let’s face it folks, when you can no longer profit from taking innocent lives, close the doors and it is time to move on. EMW is doing just that!

Prior to the overturning of Roe on June 24, 2022, and the KY Court’s ruling on August 1, 2022, EMW Women’s Surgical Center was in the business of ending lives… and they have ended the lives of SO MANY babies as the primary abortion clinic serving the city of Louisville, the state of Kentucky and a six-state region since 1981.
But, since 1981 on any day EMW’s doors were open, faithful advocates for the unborn prayed, held signs, offered booklets, and sidewalk counselors would come alongside the women, sharing words of support and other options to consider, often directing them to local pregnancy care centers.
For years Kentucky Right to Life and our members, faithful ProLife advocates and prayer warriors have stormed Heaven for those who had no voice.
We waited, trusted, and advocated that one day we would see EMW shut down. Well, that day has come!
For 50 years, Kentucky Right to Life has worked to help elect candidates for public office who were committed to be “ProLife lawmakers”. Once elected, KRTL and other groups worked tirelessly with these legislators to draft and pass laws that recognized preborn babies as human beings deserving of legal protection.
Since 2017, over 18 ProLife laws were passed! Most were challenged in the courts. The ‘Trigger’ law passed in 2019, affirmed that if Roe were overturned, abortion in Kentucky would end.
Then something just short of a miracle occurred... In 2019 the citizens of Kentucky elected Daniel Cameron as Attorney General. AG Cameron assembled his team, “the best of the best” extremely talented attorneys, many who served with Matt Bevin.
Over the last three years, General Cameron, Solicitor General Matt Kuhn, Chris Thacker and the entire team have defended Kentucky’s ProLife laws in the Jefferson and Franklin County Courts, the US Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of the United States.
Time and time again, they have demonstrated their ability to critically analyze the situation and to create a plan of action to win in the Courts. Their dedication and skill are why today we are witnessing the sale of EMW Abortion Clinic!
Yes, we know that Planned Parenthood still stands, but optimism is in the air. Thank you ProLifers! Let’s continue to pray and stand against abortion.
