(NETWORK INDIANA)

The state of Indiana is filing a response to a lawsuit from the ACLU that claims the new abortion law violates some women’s religious freedoms.

The Attorney General’s Office says the women the ACLU is representing do not have standing to sue because they are not pregnant.

A judge will review the response at a preliminary injunction hearing on October 14th.

The near-total ban on abortion is already not being enforce because of a decision from a different judge to put it on hold amid a legal battle over the measure’s constitutionality.
