Abortion clinics in Indiana reopen after judge blocks ban

INDIANA — Thursday, a judge blocked Indiana’s near-total abortion ban.

The law would have prevented abortions, except in cases of rape or incest, and even then, an abortion could only happen 10 weeks into the pregnancy.

The Right to Life Dayton said, “the pro-abortion forces know the folks of Ohio and Indiana are pro-life, so their only tactic is to bully their agenda through the courts.”

>>Women’s Med Center seeing surge of patients in wake of temporary block of abortion ban

The Woman’s Med Center in Kettering was able to reopen its doors last week after a Hamilton County judge granted a 14-day restraining order against the law, temporarily pausing Ohio’s abortion ban.

When asked about the situation in Indiana, a representative of Womens Med said, “this is one step albeit a positive one in what may be a long and arduous legal process.”

The center said they are planning to start seeing patients again for terminations at Womens Med Indianapolis starting next week.

Indiana patients can make appointments at the center’s Dayton location as they have been the past week. They can also pre-op in Indiana and then travel to Dayton for the actual surgery while they prepare to reopen fully in Indianapolis.
