The temporary injunction issued by U.S. District Judge James Patrick Hanlon in Indianapolis puts the state law on hold while a lawsuit challenging it makes its way through court.
"Once again, a federal judge is stepping in to override the will of the Indiana legislature and to deny women access to information that will help save lives," says Mike Fichter, president and CEO of Indianapolis-based Indiana Right to Life. "The irony of this is that the abortion group that is the lead plaintiff in the suit is called All Options Counseling, and yet they're denying women this option.”
According to Fichter, the abortion pill reversal process has helped save over 2,000 babies nationwide.
The Associated Press describes the pill reversal as a "disputed treatment” but Carol Tobias of National Right to Life says there is a reason the liberal wire service went with that terminology.
"It is disputed because the abortion industry and many of their allies in the media refuse to acknowledge that abortion pill reversal actually happens," she complains.
Jackie Appleman of Right to Life Michiana, located in in South Bend, tells One News Now the website AbortionPillRescue has the facts about the life-saving help for women and their unborn babies.
“We're just really disappointed that this injunction went through,” Appleman says, “because it's going to deny women whole truth about the procedure they're about to enter into and get them that option to save their child."
