Planned Parenthood Sues over New Abortion Complications Reporting Law

Fichter: Does Planned Parenthood Have Something to Hide?

INDIANAPOLIS – Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed suit against Indiana’s new abortion complications reporting law, Senate Enrolled Act (SEA) 340.

“Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit is sadly predictable,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “Almost every time Indiana lawmakers pass legislation to protect women’s health and safety, the abortion giant runs to activist judges to block the laws.

“Indiana’s new law, SEA 340 on abortion complications reporting, brings needed transparency to the abortion industry. Planned Parenthood likes to claim that abortions never harm women. If that was the case, why do they oppose this common sense law? Their lawsuit begs the question, does Planned Parenthood have something to hide?

“We are confident that Indiana’s new abortion complications reporting law will be found constitutional. In 1995, the legislature passed an informed consent bill to benefit women seeking abortions. The law was tied up in the courts for years thanks to Planned Parenthood. Once the law was found constitutional and enacted, we saw the abortion rate decline. We believe the same thing will happen here. SEA 340 helps women and unborn children in Indiana.”

According to reports, the lawsuit specifically challenges the abortion complications reporting requirements and the yearly inspection requirement.

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.
