Indiana's 2022 Abortion Law


The Indiana Supreme Court made three very important rulings in this case.

  • The Indiana Supreme Court held that the Indiana Constitution does not include a constitutional right of a woman to have an abortion. 
  • The court held that the Indiana General Assembly has the power to limit abortions so long as the law allows a woman to have an abortion to protect her life or health. 
  • The state has a legitimate interest in protecting prenatal life. However, the court did not preclude other challenges to the 2022 abortion law, but held that the statute, as whole, is not unconstitutional. 

Another case that challenges Indiana’s 2022 abortion law is a claim that the 2022 abortion law violates a woman’s freedom of religion. To say it differently, if a woman has a good faith belief that her religion allows abortion, the plaintiffs, in that case, argue that Indiana’s abortion law violates her right to have an abortion. The decision, in that case, will not be known for a while, but given the recognition by the Indiana Supreme Court that the Indiana legislature has the power to protect unborn children, it will be interesting to see how the court will balance a woman’s religious freedom (if it agrees that such freedoms permit abortions) with the state’s interest in protecting an unborn child. 

In spite of one’s feelings about abortion, a woman with an untimely pregnancy or unplanned pregnancy should, at least, look into adoption as an alternative to aborting or parenting the child.

POSITIVE ADOPTION LANGUAGE DISCLAIMER:  Please understand that these blog posts are written in a way to use language that people use when searching for help with their adoption plans.  Unfortunately, while all of us understand what positive adoption language means, most expectant moms that come to us at first do not understand what that means. The most common search term on the Internet for expectant moms is “how do I give up my baby for adoption”.  If we do not include those words in our blog posts, and instead put “how do I create an adoption plan for my baby” then our website will not show up in most expectant mom’s search results in Google.
