Future of South Bend abortion clinic in the hands of appeals court

By  | 

CHICAGO (WNDU) - The future of South Bend's new abortion clinic now rests in the hands of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.

A previous legal decision allowed Whole Woman's Health Clinic to open without a license. The lower court found that the implementation of Indiana's clinic licensing law placed an undue burden on a woman's access to abortion.

The justices have taken the matter under advisement.
