INDIANAPOLIS (September 28, 2022) – Indiana Right to Life CEO Mike Fichter issued this statement in response to yesterday’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Richard L. Young blocking Indiana’s humane final disposition law:

“The blockage of Indiana’s humane final disposition law means all babies aborted in Indiana can be treated as common medical waste, just as they were before this law was passed.  If Judge Young’s reasoning is to be followed, no law passed by any legislative body could ever be upheld if even one person claims a violation of religious belief.  Indiana won on this issue before the United States Supreme Court once, and we are confident the state will prevail again, but the sad reality of how the remains of aborted babies will once against be treated in our state is heartbreaking. This brings home the tragic reality of what abortion really is.”
