Statement on County Prosecutors Refusing to Defend Indiana’s New Pro-Life Law

May 2, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS – The Marion, Monroe and Lake County Prosecutors announced they will not defend Indiana’s new abortion law, Senate Enrolled Act (SEA) 340. SEA 340 brings transparency to the abortion industry by requiring that abortion complications be reported. Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life, said of the prosecutors’ announcement:

“These Democrat county prosecutors are thumbing their nose at the legislative process and ignoring the legitimate health risks for women following an abortion. We believe SEA 340 will be found constitutional and these county prosecutors are doing a disservice to their constituents by siding with the Planned Parenthood abortion clinics operating in their counties.  These prosecutors are playing politics with the lives of women injured by botched abortions.”

SEA 340 is currently tied up in the courts due to a lawsuit by abortion business, Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, and the American Civil Liberties Union.


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.
