Indianapolis, IN — In a continuation of attacks against Indiana OB/GYN Dr. Caitlin Bernard after she delivered critical health care to a 10-year-old rape victim in July 2022, Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita referred Dr. Bernard to the Indiana Medical Licensing Board in a last-ditch attempt to intimidate Dr. Bernard and abortion providers throughout the state. While the patient’s abortion was not performed at a Planned Parenthood health center, Dr. Bernard is a Planned Parenthood physician and abortion provider in Indiana. 

In response to the latest attacks against Dr. Bernard, Planned Parenthood Great Northwest, Hawai‘i, Alaska, Indiana, Kentucky CEO Rebecca Gibron released the following statement, and the organization has committed to providing Dr. Bernard and its providers with needed security services and assistance with legal fees. 

Rebecca Gibron, CEO of Planned Parenthood Great Northwest, Hawai‘i, Alaska, Indiana, Kentucky (PPGNHAIK): 

“AG Rokita is launching a politically-motivated attack on Dr. Bernard to scare abortion providers out of delivering the safe, legal care their patients deserve. But his far fetched accusations don’t scare us. We’ve said it before: we will not be intimidated by power-hungry, extremist lawmakers like Todd Rokita. We stand behind Dr. Bernard and all abortion providers across the country who are working through extraordinarily hostile conditions. 

“Every person, in every circumstance, deserves access to health care when and where they need it. I want all patients to know that our Planned Parenthood health centers in Indiana are open, and we welcome patients from every state. We are here to help you.” 

Planned Parenthood is committed to helping the people of Indiana get the care they need. Anyone who needs care should go to abortionfinder.org or call 1-800-230-7526. Patient navigators are ready to help.
