Suzanne Crouch on Abortion



Rape/incest survivors need notarized affidavit for abortion

[Indiana Democratic Party press release in opposition]: Additionally, Crouch has shown that she has no problem supporting her Party's extremist agenda. Let's not forget Crouch cast the tie-breaking vote to require survivors of rape or incest to have their affidavits notarized before getting a legal and safe abortion. There's little evidence to believe Crouch would actually put a stop to this extreme level of politics.

Supports a near-total abortion ban, focus on women's health

Crouch addressed reproductive health in the state, saying she is pro-life and wants to focus on women's health in regards to future legislation. She touted Senate Bill 2, passed during a special legislative summer session, saying it provided "$75 million for the support of families and for the support of mothers and babies". The legislation is a near-total abortion ban.

Voted YES on de-funding Planned Parenthood

Indiana has lost its battle to de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business--as a judge today issued a permanent injunction in a lawsuit over the de-funding law.

Planned Parenthood of Indiana is Indiana's largest abortion provider and does more than 5,000 abortions each year. Indiana became the first state of several to kick the abortion business out of its program in May 2011. A provision of the law, HB1210, would prevent Medicaid patients from obtaining services at Planned Parenthood and other facilities that provide abortions.

Governor Mitch Daniels signed the law, which would cut off anywhere from $2 million to $3 million the Planned Parenthood abortion business receives in federal funds via the Indiana government through Medicaid. [Planned Parenthood sued, which led to the court ruling].

Legislative Outcome: Passed House 66-32-2 on 4/27/11; Rep. Suzanne Crouch voted YES; passed Senate 35-13-2 on 4/19/11; signed by Governor 5/10/11; Rep. Bosma voted YEA.
