ACLU sues over Indiana’s ban on dismemberment abortions and expansion of conscience protections
“HEA 1211 will discourage women from obtaining abortions and will impose a substantial and unwarranted burden on women’s ability to obtain second-trimester, pre-viability, abortions,” huffed Ken Falk, legal director at the ACLU of Indiana.
The ACLU also couldn’t abide Senate Bill 201, authored by Sen. Liz Brown. State law previously allowed only physicians and hospital employees to object to participating in abortions for ethical, moral or religious reasons. SB 201 extends conscience protections to other medical providers, including nurses, physician assistants and pharmacists. Click here for more.
