INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An anti-abortion group claims a Lafayette clinic that offers the so-called abortion pill is violating Indiana law.
Indiana Right to Life Legislative Director Sue Swayze (SWAY'-zee) said in a news release Monday that the group is asking the state attorney general's office to investigate whether Planned Parenthood's Lafayette clinic meets state licensing requirements.
Planned Parenthood of Indiana President Betty Cockrum says all of the organization's clinics comply with state law. She calls the allegations a "flat-out lie."
The Lafayette clinic's website says it offers medical abortions using RU-486, the so-called abortion pill.
The Indiana State Department of Health had no immediate comment on the clinic's licensing status or whether medication abortions are treated the same as surgical abortions under state law and regulations.
