Planned Parenthood may soon be permitted to do abortions in its downtown Louisville facility on 7th Street.
Judge Greg Stivers wants to know ASAP if the state finds grounds to deny the license.
“You better move this one up to the front of the line," Stivers told Chad Meredith, a lawyer for Bevin.
"Yes, sir. I understand," Meredith said, according to a transcript of the telephonic conference the Courier Journal obtained.
"It can be done," Stivers said. "There's no question it can be done."
Added Stivers: "I can't understand why the secretary of that cabinet could not, could not get this license, this updated license, processed within 45 days."
Meredith responded that the cabinet "will absolutely move heaven and earth" to get the license application processed within that time.
That does not guarantee a favorable decision from the state.
We believe that Deputy General Counsel Meredith is being polite, but Planned Parenthood's clinic in Louisville was denied a license because it did not have any Transfer Agreements, as required by Kentucky law. For background, see here. The TA Appeal before the Sixth Circuit will be heard on August 8. Before that time, it is unlikely that PP's license status will change. Please pray that the Appeal will be favorable for babies.
