INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An anti-abortion group is urging Indiana’s attorney general to appeal a federal ruling that blocks a state mandate which forced women to undergo an ultrasound at least 18 hours before having an abortion.

Indiana Right to Life President Mike Fichter says he wants Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill to appeal the case to a higher court and continue the fight “to put a time requirement on our state’s ultrasound law.”

Fichter on Monday called U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Walton Pratt’s ruling “sadly predictable.” He says she has “consistently issued rulings that favor the abortion industry.”

The ultrasound requirement took effect last July as part of a wide-ranging abortion law. Pratt had previously blocked two of its other provisions, including a ban on abortions sought due to fetal genetic abnormalities.
