[ATG] Attorney General’s Office will defend SEA 371

Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – As state government’s lawyers, Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s office will defend Senate Enrolled Act 371, a state statute the 2013 Indiana General Assembly passed that will regulate facilities that perform chemical abortion procedures the same as those that perform surgical abortion procedures.  Plaintiffs today announced their intention to challenge the new statute. Zoeller today issued this statement:

 

“In fulfilling our duty to defend statutes our legislature passes from legal challenges plaintiffs file, we are defending the authority of the people’s elected representatives to make public policy decisions.  When a challenge is brought against a statute it allows the judicial branch to fulfill its role in deciding the new law’s constitutionality. We look forward to respectfully asserting the State’s case,” Zoeller said.

 

The State’s response to the plaintiff’s complaint will be filed in U.S. District Court within the appropriate deadlines.
