A new Indiana law requires medical providers to report detailed patient information to the State for women who are treated for complications due to abortions.
Planned Parenthood filed a lawsuit on Monday that seeks to block two of the law’s provisions; claiming the law “imposes unique and burdensome obligations" that are unconstitutional.
The federal suit contends that the reporting rules and a separate provision requiring annual inspections of abortion clinics are both unconstitutional because they target only abortions and abortion providers and not other procedures or clinics.
Planned Parenthood is asking a federal judge to block the two provisions, which are set to take effect July 1.
"Once again Indiana politicians are barging into the exam room with irrational demands and intrusive requirements," said Jane Henegar, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana, which filed the suit on behalf of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky
The suit contends reporting requirements for complications arising from abortions creates "vague and uncertain standards" that are written so broadly "as to be meaningless."
Many of the purported abortion complications the law lists "are both extremely rare for abortions and are more likely to occur after other medical procedures," according to the suit. One condition the law lists — blood clots — is a typical and short-lived side effect of having an abortion, it argues.
Christie Gillespie, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, said in a statement that the new law "is not about patient safety" and adds that abortion care "is already incredibly safe."
She added that restrictions are "yet another attempt by politicians to shame and stigmatize pregnant Hoosiers and spread the myth that abortion is dangerous."

Mike Fichter, the president and CEO of Indiana Right to Life, which supported the legislation, called the lawsuit "sadly predictable" and said the reporting provision "brings needed transparency to the abortion industry."
"Almost every time Indiana lawmakers pass legislation to protect women's health and safety, the abortion giant runs to activist judges to block the laws," he said in a written statement.
Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill's office defends the state's laws against legal challenges. Spokesman Bill McCleery said in a statement that the office "will carefully review this lawsuit and consider what next steps, if any, to pursue in this case."
Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb praised the law when he signed it on March 25, saying that it's similar to what many other states have enacted.
