Indiana Law To Defund Planned Parenthood Is Challenged in Federal Court

ACLU press release: ACLU And Planned Parenthood Challenge Indiana Law That Would End Federal Funding For Family Planning:

The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana, the ACLU and Planned Parenthood Federation of America filed a lawsuit on behalf of Planned Parenthood of Indiana (PPIN) challenging a law that would defund family planning programs in the state moments after it was signed by Gov. Mitch Daniels today. The law is designed to penalize health care providers that perform abortions, though they do so without federal dollars. The bill would also violate health care providers’ First Amendment rights and endanger patients by requiring providers to give misleading information about abortion. . . .
