Ind. Courts - "ACLU sues state over abortion clinic law"
The lawsuit targets Senate Enrolled Act 371, enacted this year, changed the definition of "abortion clinic" to include facilities that provide only the abortion pill mifepristone to terminate a pregnancy. Mifepristone is a non-surgical option, according to the statement, used during the first nine weeks of pregnancy.The ILB has now obtained copies of the ACLU's 14-page complaint, filed in the SD Ind., and the 8-page Exhibit.
The legislation, the ACLU said, “also amended state law to require clinics that offer non-surgical abortions to meet the same physical requirements as clinics that provide the surgical procedure.”
