U.S. Supreme Court urged to reject Indiana's request for Pence-enacted abortion restrictions to take effect


INDIANAPOLIS Two Hoosier organizations committed to preserving the right of women to choose abortion are urging the U.S. Supreme Court to let stand two lower court rulings that invalidated portions of Indiana's 2016 abortion law, enacted by then-Gov. Mike Pence.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana (ACLU) and Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) this week told the nation's high court it should reject the state's petition, filed in October by Republican Attorney General Curtis Hill Jr., that asks the Supreme Court to allow House Enrolled Act 1337 to take effect.

The law mandates that any pregnant woman who is motivated to obtain an abortion after learning her child will be born, or potentially born, with Down syndrome, another genetic disease or physical deformities that aren't immediately lethal, to instead carry the pregnancy to term and give birth.
