Supreme Court could agree to hear as early as January 4 a challenge to Indiana law banning abortions of babies diagnosed with a disability
This week the legal publication, The Indiana Lawyer posted a story reminding us that the justices of the Supreme Court will meet for their first conference of 2019 on January 4.

At that time they begin consideration of what cases the High Court will hear in 2019, which would include Indiana’s HEA 1337. That law, signed by then-Gov. Mike Pence, bans abortion for the sole reasons of the child’s race, sex, or a potential disability such as Down syndrome. HEA 1337 requires that women be informed of this prohibition as part of Indiana informed consent process.

HEA 1337 also requires that abortion clinics bury or cremate the remains of aborted babies in a dignified fashion.

Four of the nine justices must vote to accept a case, according to the Supreme Court rules.
