The following is a statement from Tamarra Wieder, Public Affairs and Policy Director for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Indiana and Kentucky in response to Matt Bevin’s comment that “It wouldn’t bother me one lick if Kentucky didn’t have any abortion provider in the state.”

“Bevin’s comments today remind us how out of touch he is with Kentuckians. Two-thirds of  voters (65%) say it is important that women in Kentucky have access to all of the reproductive health care options available, including abortion.

“I think we can all agree that politicians don’t belong in our exam rooms. These medical decisions need to happen between the patient and physician, not by Matt Bevin, Allison Ball or Daniel Cameron.

“We’re fighting for freedom, opportunity, equality, and access to health care without Gov. Bevin or any other politician controlling when, how, or why. We need to ban Bevin this Nov. 5th and work to ensure that every Kentuckian has access to the health care they need.”
