The quote by Faye Wattleton; “Reproductive freedom is critical to a whole range of issues. If we can’t take charge of this most personal aspect of our lives, we can’t take care of anything. It should not be seen as a privilege or as a benefit, but a fundamental human right.” sums up the way the staff and doctors at EMW provide reproductive freedom.
The staff and doctors at EMW put so much of themselves on the line to provide abortion care. The sacrifices they make daily to provide this essential care deserves more than any respect I could ever give. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication!
The doctors and staff at EMW face countless acts of harassment, I’m so grateful for them and their perseverance. Abortion providers are heros.
Being a clinic escort we see a different side to the harassment that the staff and doctors at EMW experience on a daily basis. Antis target them while they’re getting out of their cars in the staff parking lot, put their photos on giant posters and call them murderers and in the past have been known to harass them in their own neighborhoods. The love and respect I have for the staff at EMW cannot be put into words.
“EMW stands in the void left by the biased small minded legislature of this state. It is the only facility that gives people the opportunity to remain in control of their future.
I volunteered as an escort at EMW for 14 years until Covid sidelined me this spring out of concern for my own health. I saw the pain, confusion and conflict that clients and companions experienced after running the gauntlet of anti-choice terrorists. I saw the professional and empathetic way staff handled situations that would never occur in any other clinic in the state. I am in awe of these professionals who put their own joy and safety on the line 5 days a week.” – Clinic Escort and Kentucky Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice board member.
