Pro-lifers say they are fighting 'modern eugenics'
Alliance Defending Freedom along with lawyers from the Bioethics Defense Fund filed a friend-of-the-court brief in November with the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.
According to ADF, the brief was filed on behalf of three Down syndrome groups and a women's advocacy organization that support a law in Indiana banning abortions based solely on a child's disability, race, or gender.
Planned Parenthood affiliates challenged the law in court and a federal judge stopped it from taking effect. Now the Indiana attorney general is appealing the federal judge's decision.
