An Indiana judge yesterday blocked the state’s abortion ban from being enforced, putting the new law on hold as abortion clinic operators argue that it violates the state constitution. Owen County Judge, Kelsey Hanlon issued a preliminary injunction against the ban that took effect one week ago. The injunction was sought by abortion clinic operators who argued in a lawsuit that the state constitution protects access to the medical procedure. The ban was approved by the state’s Republican-dominated Legislature on August 5th and signed by GOP Gov. Eric Holcomb. That made Indiana the first state to enact tighter abortion restrictions since the U.S. Supreme Court eliminated federal abortion protections by overturning Roe v. Wade in June. The judge wrote, “there is reasonable likelihood that this significant restriction of personal autonomy offends the liberty guarantees of the Indiana Constitution” and that the clinics will prevail in the lawsuit.

 

An Evansville plastic fabrication company is closing up shop after more than seven decades in business. Officials with Crescent Plastics, Inc. say that the facility on East Diamond Avenue in Evansville will cease production on December 2nd, and permanently close on Dec. 31, 2022. Crescent started manufacturing operations in Evansville back in 1949, but after 73 years in business, officials say several reasons were behind the decision to close. A news release from the company says that the closure impacts 62 union and non-union employees in the Evansville factory, but that officials are doing what they can to help ease the transition. They say the tough decision to close in no way reflects the dedication and performance of affected employees.
