Indiana Judge to Hear Appeal for Proposed Abortion Clinic

From U.S. News:

A federal judge will hold a two-day hearing this week on a Texas-based group's appeal of Indiana officials' rejection of its application to open an abortion clinic in South Bend.

The South Bend Tribune reports that Indianapolis judge Clare Deitchman will determine Wednesday and Thursday whether to grant Whole Woman's Health Alliance's appeal after the state Department of Health denied the group's application for an abortion clinic license in January.

The nonprofit is challenging the Health Department's conclusion that it failed to meet requirements of having "reputable and responsible character" and didn't disclose necessary information on its application.

If the appeal is granted, the group would open the clinic to offer medication-induced abortions to women up to 10 weeks pregnant. Nonprofit founder Amy Hagstrom Miller was not available for comment.
