Walorski Statement on Denial of Application for Abortion Clinic in South Bend
Sent Letter Urging Indiana State Department of Health to Protect Sanctity of Life
WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today released the following statement after the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) denied the application by Whole Woman’s Health Alliance to open an abortion clinic in South Bend:
“Every human life is precious and deserves our protection. The Indiana State Department of Health made the right decision to defend the sanctity of life and protect women’s health by rejecting this application.”
In October, Walorski sent a letter to the State Health Commissioner urging the ISDH to deny the application. The letter is available here.
Next week, to coincide with the annual March for Life, the House will consider H.R. 4712, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would require health care practitioners to provide the same medical care to a baby born alive after a failed abortion attempt as they would to a baby born under any other circumstances. Walorski is an original cosponsor of the legislation.
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
