Supreme Court could agree to hear as early as January 4 a challenge to Indiana law banning abortions of babies diagnosed with a disability
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.
