I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)Indiana pro-lifers are looking forward to a future of saving more lives of babies in the womb.

When Planned Parenthood dropped its lawsuit against Indiana's law requiring that a woman seeking an abortion be offered a chance to see a sonogram of her baby first, the 18-hour ultrasound law went back into effect on January 1. Mike Fichter of Indiana Right to Life tells One News Now the abortion provider's decision followed some recent Supreme Court rulings.

"It's great news for Indiana, but more importantly, it's great news for unborn babies in Indiana," Fichter submits. "We know when this law was briefly in effect in 2016 … abortions dropped by over 400 babies during that time period. And when a judge blocked it, the abortions immediately started to go back up."

The key, he says, is the sonogram.

"By requiring these abortion providers to not only give her the opportunity to see this ultrasound, but to do it 18 hours in advance, it is really providing information that every woman really needs to think on as she's thinking about an abortion decision," the pro-lifer poses. "To see this image of her unborn baby is a life-changing experience."

When an expectant mother comes to understand that the child in her womb is a living human being who has the right to be born, that affects her and her baby.
