Houchin Writes Department of Health in Opposition to South Bend Abortion Facility Application

November 10, 2017

Sen. Erin Houchin

Indiana State Senator Erin Houchin (District 47) has added her voice of opposition to the Texas-based abortion chain trying to open up shop in South Bend. In a letter dated Nov. 9, Houchin wrote Indiana’s new State Health Commissioner, Dr. Kristina Box.

Houchin cited serious health and safety violations uncovered by inspectors at the chain’s other locations:

In states where this organization operates clinics, inspection records have uncovered numerous cases which demonstrate a pattern of negligence regarding basic health and safety standards, from rusty equipment, to open syringes, and more. I do not believe their standards of women’s health reflect those of the State Department of Health, or our citizens.

Thank you, Sen. Houchin, for voicing your opposition to this abortion facility’s application! Your voice adds to the thousands of concerned citizens who have already spoken out using our petition to keep South Bend abortion-free: http://p2a.co/XiEMDui.

The full text of Houchin’s letter follows:

Nov. 9, 2017

Dear Dr. Box,
I am writing to express my serious concern regarding the pending application from Whole Woman’s Health Alliance to open an abortion facility in South Bend, Indiana.

I respectfully voice my opposition to this application in the strongest possible terms. While Whole Woman’s Health Alliance would like you and the public to believe they have women’s interests at heart, the record of this Texas-based company shows otherwise. In states where this organization operates clinics, inspection records have uncovered numerous cases which demonstrate a pattern of negligence regarding basic health and safety standards, from rusty equipment, to open syringes, and more. I do not believe their standards of women’s health reflect those of the State Department of Health, or our citizens.

Indiana has made great strides in protecting the sanctity of life. Abortion numbers have dropped every year for the past five years, according to the 2016 annual Terminated Pregnancy Report compiled by your department. This is good news for Indiana, as fewer and fewer women are choosing to make dramatically life-changing decisions they can never take back.

I urge you to reject the application for a new abortion facility in South Bend in the interest of women and children across our state. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,
Erin Houchin
Senator
State of Indiana
