Attorney General Curtis Hill wants the U.S. Supreme Court to decide whether a South Bend clinic that performs abortions will stay open.

Whole Woman’s Health Alliance first tried to open a clinic in South Bend in 2017. But the state wouldn’t give it a license – it said the organization’s application was incomplete and inaccurate.

Anti-abortion activists from across northern Indiana rallied against the opening of a clinic that provides abortions in South Bend on Saturday. About 300 people attended including Indiana’s Attorney General.

During the rally opposing the Whole Woman’s Health Alliance clinic, Attorney General Curtis Hill told a crowded church that he opposes abortion, but would remain objective. Hill recently appealed a federal court order that the state clear a path for the clinic to open, despite not being awarded a permit.
