Ind. Courts - "ACLU sues state over abortion clinic law"

Updating this entry from earlier this morning, Tim Evans of the Indianapolis Star now has coverage - access it here. A quote:

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 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.”

The ILB has now obtained copies of the ACLU's 14-page complaint, filed in the SD Ind., and the 8-page Exhibit.
