About this Case
In this case, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals held unconstitutional Indiana’s law banning abortions performed when the child is not the desired sex or the child may have a disability the mother does not want to deal with.
Summary of NLF's Brief
The National Legal Foundation, along with Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, National Association of Evangelicals, Concerned Women for America, and Pacific Justice Institute argue that Indiana’s law that bans abortions based on discrimination, should be upheld. Our brief to the Supreme Court explains how the Seventh Circuit’s decision was incorrect. The statute under review holds that the abortion right overrides all others. Allowing unborn children to be killed because of their sex or race or disability should be corrected as soon as possible.
