INDIANAPOLIS— This morning, Owen County Circuit Court Judge Kelsey Hanlon granted a preliminary injunction blocking Indiana’s new abortion law. State Senator Rodney Pol Jr. (D-Chesterton) made the following statement:

“I’d like to thank the ACLU for their tireless efforts in bringing this suit forward and Judge Hanlon for taking the common sense step of granting a preliminary injunction. Judge Hanlon rightly notes that SB 1 ended 50 years of precedent and that it is in the public interest to block the new law to allow the court to address the issue on its merits. However, this may only be a temporary outcome, so I will continue to support efforts to restore a woman’s right to choose.”
