The judge hearing the challenge to Indiana’s new abortion law is not saying when she’ll decide if the law needs to be placed on hold. The ACLU of Indiana yesterday asked Special Judge Kelsey Hanlon to pause the new law that bans most abortions in the state. Lawmakers approved the law back in June, it took effect last week.
The ACLU says the law violates a woman’s right to privacy, Indiana’s attorney general’s office says there is no right to abortion in the state’s constitution. Hanlon says she will make a decision in the case ‘expeditiously.’
