Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) -- Gov. Matt Bevin (R) claimed Thursday that Planned Parenthood is performing illegal and unlicensed abortions in Kentucky.
He spoke to reporters and photographers during an unrelated event in Louisville.
"I've always been a very strongly unapologetic pro-life individual," Bevin said. "To that end, that has not changed. What I tell you is interesting, and this is just breaking news even today, is that Planned Parenthood is illegally performing abortions in Kentucky."
He went on to say, "It's that brazen disregard for the law that is going to be hammered down. There is no tolerance whatsoever for people in the Commonwealth of Kentucky disregarding the law. They are unlicensed. They are doing it knowingly, and they are going to brought to justice on this front."
WDRB contacted Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky. Maureen Manier responded with the following statement:
"Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky applied for an abortion facility license and commenced services under the guidance of the Office of the Inspector General, the state office that is responsible for licensing health facilities."
Planned Parenthood announced the opening of a new health center in Louisville Thursday. It actually opened on Dec. 11, 2015. As of Jan. 21, 2016, surgical and non-surgical abortion services have been offered at the location.

It absolutely does. Thank you, Governor Bevin
Yes, thank you Governor Bevin. The news of this made me sick when I first heard it earlier.
It seems to me that a Governor’s statement such as that should accompany indictments.
