gavel with stethoscopeA weekend pro-life rally is planned in Indiana to protest an abortion clinic that opened its doors without a state license.

Pro-lifers are organizing a “Rally for Life” in South Bend after a federal district judge ruled Whole Woman’s Health Alliance can open its doors after the Indiana Dept. of Health denied it a license in 2017. The state agency insists the abortion clinic has failed to meet licensing requirements and a legal battle has bounced around the courts ever since.

“We hold that the state stands to lose little if an injunction is issued," Judge Sarah Evans Baker wrote in her May 31 ruling, “but women in northern Indiana stand to lose a great deal if it is not."

Indiana’s attorney general, Curtis Hill, a Republican, is appealing the ruling to the 7th Circuit.

Meanwhile, Indiana Right to Life has announced the “Rally for Life” at St. John the Baptist Catholic School. The event starts at 1 p.m. local time.

Mike Fichter of Indiana Right to Life tells OneNewsNow that Judge Barker stepped “all over” Indiana’s right to license a medical facility according to its own state regulations.

“It's saying to a state that the federal government can step in and override your licensing law,” he complains. "You fill in the blank, whichever business it's going to be. This is just audacious for this judge to do that."
