Ind. Courts - "Lawsuit filed against abortion bill"

HEA 1137, which will go into effect July 1, s the subject of a lawsuit filed today. The action, filed by ACLU of Indiana and Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky in federal court, asks the court:

to block enforcement of a new law that imposes unconstitutional restrictions on women seeking abortions and their health care providers. The ACLU of Indiana and PPINK claim the law violates due process and equal protection under the Fourteenth Amendment as well as First Amendment rights of free speech.
Here is the complete ACLU news release. Here is the 12-page complaint.

Niki Kelly of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette has filed this story this morning on the lawsuit. Here is an Indianapolis Star story by Stephanie Wang and Chelsea Schneider.
