ACLU urges high court to let abortion rulings standDecember 7, 2018
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — The American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood are urging the U.S. Supreme Court to let stand two decisions that stopped portions of an Indiana abortion law.
The law was signed when Vice President Mike Pence was governor.
Federal courts have blocked the 2016 law’s provisions banning abortions for fetal genetic abnormalities, such as Down syndrome, and another requiring burial or cremation of aborted fetuses.
The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that the ACLU of Indiana and Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky urged the high court this week to reject Indiana’s request for the justices to allow the law to take effect .
They say the court’s longstanding precedent rightly bars state governments from interfering with a woman’s decision to end a pregnancy prior to fetal viability.
