“The federal courts’ decision to block a life-saving provision that we passed in the last legislative session is disappointing and very concerning. The brutal practice of dismemberment abortion on a living child in the womb is disturbing and has no place in Indiana. I co-authored this law defending the dignity of an unborn life and providing more safety for mothers and it received bipartisan support. Despite this ruling, I will continue to fight for those who cannot protect themselves and I am thankful that our state attorney general has challenged this ruling.”

While I am disappointed in the court’s decision and believe this is an issue of states’ rights, the remainder of the bill is intact and I am hopeful that the attorney general will vigorously appeal this ruling. In light of this recent action, we now have a greater duty to continue to be the voice for those unable to speak for themselves.”
