Planned Parenthood Files Lawsuit Against Parental Rights Law

May 19, 2017

INDIANAPOLIS – Yesterday Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky and the American Civil Liberties Union sued against Indiana’s new parental rights law. The law, set to take effect July 1, gives parents more rights if their minor daughter seeks an abortion.
“This law highlights the important role that parents have in the health of their young daughter,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “Planned Parenthood claims abortion is a ‘women’s right,’ but this rhetoric forgets we’re talking about young, minor girls. An abortion is not a trivial health decision to be made lightly. Parents deserve to be involved and informed.”

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.
