Judge Blocks Indiana Mandate Requiring Ultrasound Hours Before Abortion
The ACLU and Planned Parenthood of IN and Kentucky sued the state last July on the grounds that the law could prevent some women from having access to abortions.
Anti-abortion leaders are seeking to have Planned Parenthood's current taxpayer funding redirected to other community healthcare centers that provide more comprehensive care and also outnumber the abortion chain's clinics by at least 20 to 1.
In last week's U.S. Senate vote, Vice President Pence broke a 50-50 tie to advance a bill allowing states to block federal "Title X" family planning funds from organizations that provide abortions.
Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, called the legislation "one of the most extreme anti-abortion measures in the country".
A federal judge on Thursday blocked an IN law that would have banned abortions based exclusively on a fetus's disability or genetic anomaly, suggesting that it was an illegal limit on a woman's long-established constitutional right... Planned Parenthood and its abortion services could still exist; it would simply have to exist without the aid of federal funds.
The change in ultrasound timing was part of a series of abortion restrictions the state had passed, which then-Indiana Gov. It accuses Planned Parenthood of opposing the 18-hour ultrasound requirement for financial reasons. Every woman that is counseled for abortion care receives information about all options.
Pratt granted a preliminary injunction against the provision, and the latest decision followed an earlier emergency injunction that prevented the law from taking effect previous year. He works as an Online Marketing Consultant for, providing web marketing services for clients in Albany, Goldsboro.

Cockrum says Indiana's mandate created scheduling and travel burdens that threatened some women's ability to legally obtain a medical or surgical abortion.
Pratt also found that "there is little to no concrete evidence" to support the state's argument that informed-consent waiting periods decrease the likelihood that a woman will go through with an abortion they already chose to have.
Previously, the state of IN required doctors to perform an ultrasound prior to an abortion but did not set a time requirement associated with the procedure.
Bonyen-Lee Gilmore, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood Great Plains, said it was an unusual move, but the organization believes the formal injunction could come as soon as next week. "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.
A ruling in Planned Parenthood's favor could open the door for abortions to be performed at other clinics throughout the state.
"This is a major victory for women in the state", Ken Falk, legal director at ACLU in IN, said during a Monday press conference.
But as the pro-life spokesman points out, if those centers are able to convince the woman to have the baby and provide her any needed services, it would impact Planned Parenthood's bottom line by eliminating the income from an abortion.
Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill said in a statement that his office is considering the next steps in the case.
