Press advisory: another Obama administration attack on Indiana sovereignty

June 17, 2011

The following statement was issued tonight by Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter in response to an Associated Press report that the U.S. Justice Department filed an after-hours brief tonight urging U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt to grant Planned Parenthood of Indiana’s request for an injunction that will block Indiana from withholding public funds from Indiana’s largest abortion business.
 

“The Obama administration is once again showing its contempt for Indiana’s sovereignty in managing its Medicaid program by using the Justice Department to ramp up the pressure on the federal judge deciding this key issue, just as it did with the recent letter from the Department of Health and Human Services disapproving of Indiana’s right to defund abortion businesses.  We believe this latest move serves to underscore that abortion is more important to this administration than the sovereignty of Indiana, the intent of the Indiana legislature, and the will of Hoosiers who do not want their tax dollars subsidizing the business of abortion.”

 A ruling on the motion for an injunction is expected by July 1.
