Indiana’s Unconstitutional Crackdown on Abortions Part of Broader War on Reproductive Freedom

NEW YORK – Attorney General Letitia James, along with 15 additional Attorneys General from around the nation, today fought to support women’s access to safe reproductive health care. By filing an amicus brief in support of a lawsuit filed by the Whole Woman’s Health Alliance (WWHA) — which is attempting to open a medical abortion clinic in South Bend, Indiana — the coalition is arguing that states have an interest in protecting the health and safety of their residents, which includes promoting access to safe, reproductive health care. The move by the State of Indiana is part of a broader war on reproductive freedom happening across the nation, including restrictive and prohibitive laws on abortions that have passed in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, and Ohio.
