Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter issued this statement regarding the Indiana Supreme Court hearing oral arguments in the challenge to Indiana’s new abortion law

“There is no right to abortion in the Indiana Constitution.  The United States Supreme Court made it clear abortion policy is to be decided by the people of each state, which is exactly what happened when the Indiana legislature passed restrictive legislation following the overturning of Roe vs. Wade.  We hope the court will act quickly in upholding the new law so Indiana can move forward in ending the majority of abortions in our state.  There is a great urgency to the court’s proceeding as over 150 unborn children continue to die from abortion in Indiana every week the new law remains blocked.”
