Right to Protest Heats Up Outside Kentucky’s Last Abortion Clinic

posted on July 24, 2017

CBS News’s Anna Werner reports that protesters from a Christian fundamentalist group called Operation Save America are mobilizing this week to shut down Kentucky’s last abortion clinic, which the state has threatened to close for a lack of licensing.

Werner writes, “In September, a judge will hear arguments on whether the clinic can stay open under state licensing rules.”
