State Representative Cindy Kirchhofer (R - Beech Grove) issued the following statement in response to U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt decision to deny a request filed by Planned Parenthood of Indiana:
"We all had constituents contact us about this issue. Many of them felt that taxpayer money should not be used to pay for abortions.
"Physicians provide so much necessary information, even if you don't ask for it. Let's make sure the mother and the baby are both taken care of."
