Clinton-Appointed Judge Sides with Planned Parenthood over Women’s Health

June 29, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS – Clinton-appointed U.S. District Court Judge Richard Young granted Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) a preliminary injunction against Indiana’s new abortion complications reporting law, Senate Enrolled Act (SEA) 340.

Planned Parenthood and the ACLU filed suit in April to block two portions of the law: first, that physicians, hospitals and abortion facilities report when a woman is injured by an abortion; second, that abortion operators must disclose greater amounts of information when attempting to open a new abortion facility in Indiana.

“We’re not surprised a judge appointed by President Clinton would side with Indiana’s largest abortion chain,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “Planned Parenthood profits off ending the lives of thousands of unborn Hoosiers every year. We urge Attorney General Curtis Hill to appeal Judge Young’s decision, so that women’s health is protected and upheld in Indiana.”

The United States Supreme Court 

Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “No one should be forced to promote abortion against their will. We’re pleased the Supreme Court recognized the free speech rights of pregnancy resource centers.”

Indiana’s Abortion Laws Targeted by Abortion Industry in New Lawsuit

June 21, 2018

Fichter: Indiana’s Pro-Life Elected Officials Will Protect Women and Children

INDIANAPOLIS – Whole Woman’s Health Alliance (WWHA) and Bloomington’s pro-abortion, All-Options Pregnancy Resource Center, are suing Indiana over its abortion laws. The lawsuit is targeting many abortion laws, including informed consent measures, physical building standards and more.

“The abortion industry has never found an abortion law it likes, even when the laws protect women’s health and safety,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “The new lawsuit by WWHA and Bloomington’s pro-abortion, All-Options Pregnancy Resource Center, is led by organizations who care more about profits than the women they claim to serve. WWHA has made no secret it is repulsed by Indiana’s abortion laws. We believe this is why WWHA came to Indiana – to gain standing in order to dismantle every meaningful abortion law in the wake of Hellerstedt, WWHA’s Supreme Court victory.

“Indiana is ground zero in the fight to protect women and unborn children. We are confident Indiana’s elected officials will remain steadfast in their defense of women and children and swiftly and strongly fight WWHA’s lawsuit.”

Banks and Rokita Call on Indiana Attorney General to Investigate Abortions on Minors

June 21, 2018

WASHINGTON – U.S. Representatives Jim Banks (IN-3) and Todd Rokita (IN-4) have sent a letter to Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill regarding the alleged failure of abortion doctors to report abortions done on girls under 16 years of age to the Department of Child Services as required by law.

Banks and Rokita’s letter to Hill raises concerns about the abortion facilities receiving federal Title X funds. The letter begins:

“It has come to our attention that since July 1, 2017, 48 abortions were performed on minors under 16 years of age by nine abortion doctors in six facilities within the state of Indiana. We are concerned that these entities may be recipients of federal Title X grant funds, which require compliance with state laws to ensure proper precautions by taken by doctors and staff to flag any potential child abuse, molestation, sexual abuse, rape or incest. These facilities face allegations of failing to report the abortion procedures on minors to the Department of Child Services as required by state law, which, if they had received Title X funds, would be a violation of federal law.”

Banks and Rokita go on to say, “We support an immediate investigation into these providers for their use of Title X funds as well as the purported violations of the law.”

“We commend Reps. Banks and Rokita for recognizing the seriousness of the allegations against nine Indiana abortion doctors,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “The apparent failure of the abortion doctors to report abortions done on girls under 16 has likely enabled sexual perpetrators and sex traffickers to continue abuse against young victims.”
