So far, so good. I'd like to see Mitch Daniels stay right where he is, and prove himself for a few years more. But either he's done this because it's the right thing to do, or because he thinks it's what the voters want. Either way, it's a good sign.

Judge Tanya Walton Pratt declined to issue the injunction while she takes more time to analyze the legal issues involved in the lawsuit. That type of decision is usually an indicator that the judge will eventually issue a ruling against the party bringing the lawsuit.

Sounds hopeful. I was expecting we'd have to fight the activist judiciary on this.

From the article,

.....The legislation also contains provisions to end all state-directed funding for businesses that do abortions, to protect pain-capable unborn children beginning at 20 weeks, to opt-out of abortion coverage in any state health exchanges required under the new federal health law, to require that women considering abortion be given full, factual information in writing, and to require doctors who do abortions, or their designees, to maintain local hospital admitting privileges in order to streamline access to emergency care for women injured by abortion. ......

Not sure what this means....does this mean if a hospital does abortions, the state could eliminate funding for ANY other medical procedure done in that hospital?

I can’t imagine what possible grounds PP could have to seek that injunction.

The funding provisions of the law are restricted to free standing abortion clinics. On the other hand, I’m not aware of any hospital in Indiana which performs abortions. Any Hoosiers have information on this?
