Indiana recently joined North Dakota as the only two states to ban abortions for genetic abnormalities like Down Syndrome or for gender selection. The law also specifies that the aborted must be buried or cremated.
Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky and the ACLU have filed suit against the state for its new law.
Indiana Right to Life has declared that Planned Parenthood’s motive is profit and not the right of women to end the life of their unborn child.
Planned Parenthood claims this places an “undue burden on women’s right to choose an abortion” and that the requirements for handling the bodies of the aborted adds cost for the additional requirements for disposal of “medical waste.”
