Federal court blocks key part of Indiana chemical abortion law

November 27, 2013

INDIANAPOLIS – A United States District Court late today blocked a key provision of an Indiana law governing chemical abortions by granting Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky a preliminary injunction against new physical plant requirements for its Lafayette, Ind. abortion clinic. The law, which was scheduled to go into effect January 1, 2014, required Planned Parenthood’s abortion clinic to meet the physical plant requirements of all other Indiana abortion clinics.

Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter issued this statement:

“Today’s court action means that Planned Parenthood will be allowed to continue its abortion operations in Lafayette without meeting a single physical building requirement. We believe this action proves once again that Planned Parenthood holds little regard for the health and welfare of its clients. Planned Parenthood simply does not want to cut into its profit margin by doing the renovations required by Indiana law.”

Fichter notes that while today’s preliminary injunction is a temporary setback, he is confident the State of Indiana will ultimately prevail.
