Appeals court restores part of abortion lawMarch 19, 2019
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — A federal appeals court has ruled portions of a 2016 Indiana abortion law are not unconstitutionally vague and has reversed an injunction blocking them.
The 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 Thursday that U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson should have ruled against plaintiffs Indiana University and three of its researchers challenging the law that, in part, criminalized the transfer of fetal tissue.
Magnus-Stinson found a section of the law dealing with the acquisition, receipt and transfer of the fetal tissue to be too uncertain to have legal force. But the appeals court opinion written by Judge Frank Easterbrook says, “Some uncertainty at the margins does not condemn a statute.”
A telephone message seeking comment was left for an IU spokeswoman.
