Planned Parenthood Merger Will Likely Increase Abortion Rate in Kentucky

June 10, 2013

INDIANAPOLIS – Today, Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Planned Parenthood of Kentucky announced they are merging into one organization on July 1, 2013. Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter released the following statement:

“Planned Parenthood of Kentucky currently does not do surgical or chemical abortions, despite Kentucky’s abortion laws being weaker than Indiana’s. This merger will likely result in Planned Parenthood expanding its abortion business south of the Ohio River and driving the abortion rate higher in Kentucky while avoiding Indiana’s abortion laws. We will continue to work with the many organizations offering positive alternatives to abortion so that all women, regardless of where they reside, know they have another option besides ending their unborn child’s life.”

Indiana Right to Life’s mission is to protect the right to life, especially of unborn children, through positive education, compassionate advocacy and promotion of healthy alternatives to abortion.
