ACLU, Planned Parenthood praise preliminary injunction against abortion law

Fichter on Monday called U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Walton Pratt's ruling "sadly predictable".

In an interview this afternoon, Cockrum said the requirement would be particularly challenging for the patients served by Planned Parenthood: "It is a fact across the country, and certainly in IN, that a disproportionate number of women seeking abortions are low-income". The abortion provider had 23 clinics around the state at that time, according to Life News.

"Simply put, the State has not provided any convincing evidence that requiring an ultrasound to occur eighteen hours prior to an abortion rather than on the day of an abortion makes it any more likely that a woman will choose not to have an abortion", Pratt wrote.

Daleiden, who pledged that more videos would be forthcoming, now faces 15 felony counts in California, along with his co-investigator, Sandra Merritt, over their undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. Obama's rule declared that states could not bar Title X funds from going to groups that perform abortion.

Under SB 300 public entities will receive the highest priority for getting federal funds, followed by non-public hospitals and federally qualified health centers, rural health clinics and non-public health providers that have their primary goal as the provision of primary health care, including women's health services.

"We practice evidence-based medicine at Planned Parenthood of IN and Kentucky, and the protocol that works and that is IN practice is that the ultrasound be provided just shortly before the abortion", Cockrum said Monday.

The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (UW SMPH) has deployed both faculty members of its OB/GYN department and medical residents (by way of the Ryan Fellowship) to work at a clinic designated by Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin (PPWI).

A federal judge announced in a memo plans to block abortion regulations in Missouri that were challenged in a case brought forward by Planned Parenthood affiliates against the state.

The law was signed by then-Governor Mike Pence last March. "The court found that this new requirement resulted in a real impediment to women and served no legitimate objective", said Ken Falk, the ACLU of Indiana Legal Director.

"I think the 20-week provision...is a step forward to protect human life", Branstad told reporters. Responding to concerns that invalidating the outpatient surgical portion of the bill might also invalidate other abortion requirements that fall outside the Texas ruling, Sachs said he was open to delaying the effective date of such a ruling for 60 to 90 days to give Missouri lawmakers time to carve out those requirements. Falk said his and PPINK President & CEO Betty Cockrum's struggle with the state on abortion-related issues has spanned multiple administrations, so it is hard to know whether the fact that IN now has a new governor and a new attorney general will change the way the state chooses to proceed after Pratt's most recent ruling.
