INDIANAPOLIS – Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) is appalled at the complete and total lack of empathy that Rep. Nisly has shown Hoosier women by filing an unconstitutional abortion ban bill, with no exceptions for victims of rape or incest or in consideration of a woman's health, in the Indiana General Assembly.

"A woman has the right to privacy while making medical decisions on behalf of herself and her family," said Betty Cockrum, President and CEO of PPINK. "Government intrusion into our doctors' offices must end. It is outrageous that Indiana lawmakers continue to judge and shame women. It is time for them to instead respect and trust women."
