State of Indiana not appealing abortion law order

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A state law banning abortions in Indiana because of fetal genetic abnormalities is still not in affect.

A federal judge issued a preliminary injunction in June. This blocked the law from taking effect.

Indiana's attorney general had 30 days to appeal the preliminary order.

Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky say the law is unconstitutional and violates women's privacy rights.

A spokesman for the Attorney General's office says if the injunction is made permanent, Indiana "would likely appeal that."
