Attorney General Curtis Hill wants a federal district court to reject challenges to Indiana law designed to protect women seeking abortions.

Hill says the arguments brought by Whole Woman’s Health Alliance and affiliated co-plaintiffs against the existing state statutes “fail as a matter of law.”

Tuesday, the Indiana Attorney General said there are no pregnant women seeking to invalidate the safeguards among the plaintiffs.

WWHA operates a South Bend clinic that provides medication abortions. Hill says the organization treats as trivial what he calls the very real threats to a woman’s mental and physical health that can be created by abortions.
