Indiana opposes injunction bid for proposed abortion clinic
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Indiana is asking a federal judge to rule against a Texas-based nonprofit that wants to open a South Bend abortion clinic.
The group is asking a judge to block Indiana's licensing rules so that it can open a clinic to perform medication-induced abortions. Whole Woman's Health Alliance first applied for a license in October 2017.
Indiana's attorney general's office filed documents Monday asking the judge to reject the group's bid for a preliminary injunction. The filing says Indiana's "interests in enforcement outweigh the harms Whole Woman's Health might suffer pending a final decision on the merits."
An Indiana administrative panel rejected the nonprofit's request to open a South Bend clinic last year, saying its application lacked necessary information. The group reapplied for a license in January.
