AG Hill files powerful brief defending Indiana’s pro-life laws
Pro-lifers in Indiana are applauding the decision by Attorney General Curtis Hill (pictured) to ask the Supreme Court to review and reverse a lower decision overturning the state’s law banning abortion for the sole reasons of the child’s race, sex, national origin or a potential disability such as Down syndrome.
In addition, the historic “Dignity for the Unborn Act,” also known as HEA 1337, prohibits abortion businesses from treating the remains of unborn child as common medical waste. Both provisions were blocked in late 2017 by Judge Tonya Walton Pratt, an appointee of President Obama. AG Hill is contesting that conclusion as well.
The bill was signed into law in 2016 by then Gov. Mike Pence. The lawsuit against HEA 1337 was then brought by Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union
