Indiana Right to Life Statement on Legality of Abortion Facility Law
August 22, 2013
INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Right to Life President and CEO, Mike Fichter, released the following statement on the legality of Senate Enrolled Act 371 after learning of a lawsuit filed against the bill.
“Today’s lawsuit comes as no surprise because Planned Parenthood wants to protect its abortion business. It’s clear that Planned Parenthood sees any amount of common sense oversight as too much oversight. If Planned Parenthood truly cared about women’s health, they would desire all abortion facilities, even facilities they do not operate, to meet a basic standard.
“The state is well within its bounds on Senate Enrolled Act 371. If Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit advances to any court, we believe any judge will recognize the authority of the state to put this law into effect.”
Indiana Right to Life’s mission is to protect the right to life, especially of unborn children, through positive education, compassionate advocacy and promotion of healthy alternatives to abortion.
