Supreme Court Decision to Not Hear Indiana Versus Planned Parenthood Is a Disappointment for Taxpayers

May 28, 2013

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter released the following statement after the Supreme Court decided it would not hear Indiana versus Planned Parenthood, a case over the funding of the largest abortion provider in Indiana.
“The Supreme Court’s decision to not hear Indiana versus Planned Parenthood is incredibly disappointing for taxpayers and states’ rights. Taxpayers should not be forced to subsidize the state’s largest abortion business. Even if Planned Parenthood is instructed to use tax dollars for non-abortion activities, they then are free to use other funds for growing their abortion business. The Supreme Court’s decision to not hear this case is also a defeat for all states that wish to pass laws regarding funds in their own states. We believe the court system failed taxpayers by blocking the 2011 law that defunded Indiana abortion providers.”Planned Parenthood of Indiana is Indiana’s largest abortion provider and does more than 5,000 abortions each year.

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.
