Attorney General Rokita asks courts to lift injunctions against several Indiana abortion laws
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita and his team took new steps towards reversing injunctions on abortion laws in the Hoosier state.
One law that Rokita is asking courts to lift the injunction for is a ban on discriminatory abortions sought specifically because of the unborn child’s race, sex, or disability.
In addition, Rokita is petitioning to lift injunctions on bans on dismemberment abortions, and a requirement that parents be notified when a court approves an abortion for a minor without parental consent.
“Like most Hoosiers, I believe in building a culture of life in Indiana,” said Rokita. “That means protecting the lives of unborn babies and safeguarding the physical, mental and emotional well-being of our mothers. I’ll do everything in my power to advance this mission.”
Rokita has already obtained a court-filed stipulation that halts expansion plans by abortion providers in South Bend and Evansville.
