INDIANAPOLIS — Wednesday, an Indiana abortion law went before a federal judge and lost.

The judge blocked the law that would have required doctors to tell women, who are getting a drug-induced abortion, about another drug that would reverse the abortion.

There is no scientific evidence that a drug-induced abortion can be reversed after a patient has taken the drug.

Republican legislators had championed the provision–opponents questioned the safety and effectiveness of the other drug.

“We are thrilled that the judge has blocked implementation of this law until we have a chance to fully challenge it in court,” said Parker Dockray, Executive Director of All-Options. “Providers should not be forced to give patients inaccurate and dangerous misinformation about ‘reversing’ an abortion. Pregnant people deserve better — they need accurate information about all their options, and support to make the decisions that are right for them.”

The lawsuit, All-Options v. Attorney General of Indiana, also challenged a 2021 ban on patients’ ability to obtain medication abortion through telemedicine.
