After the state Supreme Court denied a rehearing, Indiana's abortion ban goes into force.

Indiana's abortion ban takes effect after Supreme Court declines rehearing.

Indianapolis— After the state Supreme Court granted a rehearing in the ACLU of Indiana and Planned Parenthood case, Indiana's near-total abortion ban took effect.

The Indiana Supreme Court maintained the prohibition 4-1 on Monday, 

Planned Parenthood and other healthcare providers "cannot show a reasonable likelihood of success" in their challenge to abortion restrictions.

The verdict comes over a year after Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb signed the measure after the 2022 special legislative session.

The verdict will confirm the court's June 30 ruling that last year's abortion ban did not violate the state's constitution.

Rush said the ACLU and Planned Parenthood wanted the judge to keep the injunction that suspended the ban while they sought another in trial court. 

State healthcare professionals have followed the abortion law since Aug. 1, despite weeks of legal uncertainty.
