Indiana Judge Grants Certification for Class Action Lawsuit Against State-Wide Abortion Ban

A superior court judge in Marion County, Indiana, certified a class action lawsuit that aims to abolish Indiana’s near-total abortion ban. The Plaintiffs in this case seek class action status for claims related to Indiana’s controversial religious freedom law. This lawsuit alleges that the near-total abortion ban violates Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). Plaintiffs in this case include practicing members of Judaism, Unitarian Universalism, Episcopalianism and Paganism. A 29- page complaint was filed after the judge determined that common issues existed for all unnamed and named plaintiffs in this case.
