Planned Parenthood’s Western Affilates Take Over Kentucky Operations

Planned Parenthood’s affiliate overseeing Hawaii and three western states announced Friday that it was adding Indiana and Kentucky, a first-of-its-kind consolidation based not on geography but on reallocating resources to fight new abortion restrictions in the Midwest and South.

The arrangement by the women’s health nonprofit places Indiana and Kentucky under a Seattle-based affiliate that currently oversees clinics in Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho and western Washington.

In recent years, that group has faced the legal costs of challenging far-reaching limits on abortion rights sought by Republican lawmakers in both states.
