Pence says law constitutional despite lawsuit

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s office says it is confident that the state’s new abortion law is constitutional, despite a court challenge from the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky.

Pence’s deputy press secretary, Stephanie Hodgin, said Thursday in an emailed statement that Pence will work with the Office of the Attorney General to defend the law, which bans abortions sought because of genetic abnormalities and mandates that an aborted fetus be buried or cremated.

The state Attorney General’s office issued a statement saying that any law passed by the Legislature and the governor is presumed constitutional until a court decides otherwise.
