ACLU, Planned Parenthood Sue Indiana Over New Abortion Law

April 11, 2016

(ABC News) – The American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky are suing the state of Indiana over its recently signed law that bans abortions sought because of genetic abnormalities, calling the law unconstitutional. The federal lawsuit filed Thursday also challenges a provision that mandates an aborted fetus be buried or cremated. It seeks an injunction to keep the law taking effect on July 1.
