ACLU takes on SEA371

Play

Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky filed a lawsuit in federal court this morning challenging Indiana’s newest law regulating abortion clinics. Senate Enrolled Act 371, passed earlier this year, calls for facilities that prescribe and dispense abortion-inducing medications to have many of the same emergency and urgent care resources as hospitals. The bill affects only one facility in the state, Planned Parenthood’s Lafayette clinic, which has been in operation for 40 years, providing a variety of health care services for women. The portion of the bill covering non-surgical abortions goes into effect on January first. Betty Cockrum, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, says the expense of retrofitting the facility to comply with the law would be prohibitive. The law also specifies numerous “informed consent” statements clinic workers must make to women seeking the abortion pill. The women must also be shown sonogram images of the fetus in their wombs and must be advised the availability of adoption alternatives in the state. Correspondent Michael Glab spoke with Cockrum this afternoon in a WFHB Feature Exclusive.
