Both Sides Of Abortion Debate Organize In Indianapolis

Jan 22, 2018

People on both sides of the abortion issue made their voices heard at the Indiana Statehouse today and young Hoosiers were well represented.

Hundreds of pro-life supporters from around the state attended a march and rally event in Indianapolis Monday. While a national rally has been held in Washington for many years, this was the first time the event was organized in Indiana.

Anna Allgaier, regional coordinator for Students for Life of America, says Hoosier youth are pro-life.

Students Urge Donnelly To Defund Planned Parenthood

Sep 21, 2017

A student anti-abortion group made a stop at U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly’s (D-Ind.) office. They want Donnelly to support the latest push to repeal the Affordable Care Act which includes a provision to defund Planned Parenthood.

Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins says Donnelly calls himself pro-life.

“Then voting against funding the single largest abortion vendor in our country should be a very, very easy decision,” she says.

Planned Parenthood in Merrillville is able to provide abortions again after halting those services for a couple weeks.

A Planned Parenthood clinic in northwest Indiana has halted abortions because of a state law that involves doctors’ admitting privileges marking the first time the state has used the law to stop services.

In a letter earlier this month the Indiana State Department of Health told the Merrillville Planned Parenthood to stop performing abortions because a doctor with admitting privileges had ended their relationship with the clinic.

A judge’s ruling halting parts of the state’s new anti-abortion law is, in the words of retiring Indiana Planned Parenthood CEO Betty Cockrum, a “fine last hurrah” for her.
