Please include the following statement from Rep. Matt Ubelhor (R-Bloomfield) in your coverage of Planned Parenthood.
STATEMENT-"I am very pleased with the ruling of U.S District Judge Tonya Walton Pratt, her ruling today brings Indiana closer to being one of the most pro-life states in the country.
"This bill protects taxpayers and ensures that Indiana residents are protecting the sanctity of life by not funding organizations that offer abortion services.
"The bill in no way limits the availability of local health service options for women and their families in Indiana."
Rep. Ubelhor serves District 62, which includes Orange, Lawrence, Martin, Washington, and Greene counties. For the 2011 legislative session, Rep. Ubelhor is a member of the Ways and Means Committee and the Natural Resources Committee.
