Obama-appointed federal judge overturns Indiana abortion safety law

A federal judge nominated by President Obama has overturned Indiana's 2013 law requiring medication abortion clinics to have the same standards as surgical facilities, reports LifeSiteNews.

In her decision, Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson ruled in favor of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK), which opposed the pro-life regulations. According to Magnus-Stinson, the law violated the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution, in part because the law treats a medication abortion facility run by PPINK differently than other medical offices, specifically those defined as "physician's offices." Magnus-Stinson agreed with PPINK's claim that the law is "without a rational basis" for treating the non-surgical PPINK facility differently than a physician's office.

PPIK argued that upgrading to surgical facility standards were unnecessary because no surgeries are done on-site. According to court documents, PPINK argued that "because no surgical procedures are performed there, the clinic does not have scrub facilities, a recovery room or area with a recovery cart or lounge chair, or an emergency call system. PPINK has not provided evidence of the cost of compliance, but it notes that any monies spent would otherwise be used for patient care."

Indiana Right to Life president Mike Fichter said in a public statement that while the decision "favoring Planned Parenthood is disappointing," it was "not surprising."
