Abortion Access in Indiana

Abortion has been effectively banned in Indiana since August 21, 2023. The narrow exceptions included in this extreme ban will undoubtedly put Hoosiers’ lives at risk. Uncertainties surrounding the ban have already forced providers to stop providing most abortions in Indiana.

However, in April 2024, a preliminary injunction was affirmed as a result of a lawsuit brought by the ACLU of Indiana, which claims Indiana's abortion ban violates the state's Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). This aims to allow abortion access for Hoosiers who have sincere religious beliefs that they must be able to obtain an abortion. The court also affirmed that the case should proceed as a class action, applying to all individuals whose religious beliefs would direct them to obtain abortions that the statute bans. Anyone in Indiana needing representation on this issue is encouraged to reach out to ACLU of Indiana at intake@aclu-in.org or via our online intake form.

We are continuing to fight in the courts and the Statehouse to reinstate access to abortion care, and we won't stop. Take action and learn more below.
