LOUISVILLE — A Lexington abortion clinic has announced it will close at the end of January, leaving only a Louisville facility which performs abortions in Kentucky.
The decision by EMW Women’s Clinic in Lexington to shut down was announced by the Kentucky chapter of the National Organization for Women on its Facebook page, according to Associated Press.
The Lexington clinic had tried for months to obtain a state license, and then the clinic’s landlord declined to renew the lease on its property, which the facility had occupied since 1989, clinic officials said. The clinic has been closed since mid-2016 because of the licensing fight, AP reported.
