Abortion Access in Indiana

Indiana's abortion ban has been temporarily blocked in court. Abortion is currently legal in Indiana.

The Indiana legislature recently became the first in the country to pass an abortion ban since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, making history by taking our state backwards. SB 1 effectively eliminates abortion access across the state for more than 1.3 million women and people of reproductive age in Indiana. We filed two lawsuits in state court to stop the ban in its tracks.

On September 22, a judge granted our request to halt enforcement of the ban while our litigation moves through the courts — restoring abortion access in Indiana. We will continue to fight, alongside our partners on the case, until this ban is blocked for good. We will never stop fighting for abortion access here in Indiana.

LITIGATION

We're suing to stop Indiana's abortion ban. Hoosiers have a constitutional right to privacy, and these deeply private, personal, and unique decisions should be made by women in consultation with their doctors.
