Indiana’s Attorney General is on our side

June 30, 2017

Before you check out for a long Independence Day holiday weekend, we thought you would be heartened to see what Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill had to say on the latest abortion-related court ruling. This week’s preliminary injunction against portions of SEA 404, the parental rights bill, is a temporary setback, but we’re pleased AG Hill is fighting for life to prevail in Indiana!

AG Curtis Hill

“The challenge of this law is nothing more than an attempt to give courts rather than parents the legal guardianship of children. When an unemancipated minor undergoes even the most basic medical procedures, the involvement of a parent or legal guardian is typically required. However, for the time being, Wednesday’s injunction essentially encourages a minor to go it alone through the emotionally and physically overwhelming procedure of aborting a human being. We will always support the authority of parents to know what is going on with their children and continue to defend Hoosier parents,” Hill said.

“This law already enables judges to determine that some minors could have extenuating circumstances in their relationships with their parents that make notification unwise or unsafe. In these instances, judges have full authority to waive the notification of parents. By requiring minors to notify their parents, Senate Enrolled Act 404 increases the likelihood that minors will go through this process with the support and guidance needed.”
