Planned Parenthood of IN and Kentucky filed suit Thursday to block a new abortion law stressing parental rights when a minor seeks an abortion.

The federal lawsuit filed in Indianapolis by Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union of in seeks an injunction blocking some of the law's measures from taking effect July 1.

PPINK is challenging SEA 404, which requires a pregnant girl under the age of 18 to obtain parental permission when seeking an abortion. Erin Houchin, R-Salem, said the bill was not about women seeking abortions, but was rather meant to allow parents to be involved the the minor's health care decision, which she said can have a "lasting psychological impact".

ACLU Legal Director Ken Falk and Planned Parenthood Indiana President Betty Cockrum speak at a press conference after the appeals court released its ruling.

"We encourage teenagers to have open and honest conversations with their family members, but unfortunately not every teenager is in an environment where that is safe", Cockrum said.

An official familiar with the matter told Reuters that Comey had agreed in principle to testify behind closed doors at some point. The Trump administration is looking to fill the job after President Donald Trump fired Director James Comey this week.

Another provision says when parents are giving consent for an abortion, they must show "some evidence" - beyond an ID - that they are the child's legal parent or guardian. The suit contends those violate the Constitution's equal protection and due process clauses.

Local affiliate Planned Parenthood of the Heartland said Thursday that the closings will reduce its facilities that provide abortions in Iowa from eight to five.

Torres said that clients of the Farmington clinic, the only Planned Parenthood clinic north of Santa Fe, can access other Planned Parenthood clinics in southern Colorado, including in Durango and Cortez, at which New Mexico Medicaid is accepted.

The two groups have successfully fought other abortion restrictions in the past.
