Roe v. Wade 1973 signAmerica is watching and waiting for a federal judge's decision on a pro-life law in Indiana.

The American Civil Liberties Union’s (ACLU) is seeking a preliminary injunction to keep Indiana's ban on dismemberment abortion from going into effect.

Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter was amazed at the ACLU’s eagerness to shoot down pro-life legislation.

"Before the ink was dry on Gov. Eric Holcomb's (R-Ind.) signature, the ACLU was filing suit to try to block this dismemberment abortion ban from going into effect, so it's just another one of these amazing things," Fichter pointed out.

The pro-life leader is appalled that such an inhumane practice is still championed in this day and age.

"This procedure is so barbaric that we wouldn't let this happen to an animal, and yet we passed this law in Indiana and ACLU, Planned Parenthood are all over it – to try to stop this ban from going into effect," Fichter added.

Several other states have discussed or passed similar legislation.

"They're all working through the legal system right now, so this is that time in the pro-life movement where there are so many different approaches that are all percolating up through the federal system," Fichter asserted. "We're going to see which one makes it through to topple Roe v. Wade, but we are confident that whether it's Indiana's dismemberment abortion ban or something from another state, we think Roe is on its last leg, and we think one of these challenges is going to take it down."
