Indiana AG will appeal decision invalidating ban on abortions of babies with Down Syndrome

Here is a link to a LifeNews story on the latest developments in the Indiana litigation. Indiana passed the Dignity for the Unborn Act in 2016. That statute prohibited abortions due to disability, sex, or race, and also required that the remains of aborted babies be disposed of in a dignified manner. The Indiana law was held unconstitutional on September 22, 2017 by a federal district court judge in Indiana.  Curtis Hill, Indiana’s Attorney General, has announced that the state will appeal the ruling.
