The executive director of Allen County Right to Life today filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Justice against the Fort Wayne Women's Health Organization, alleging that the clinic at 2210 Inwood Drive does not provide handicapped parking spaces or a ramp for wheelchair access -- an omission Humbarger says could endanger women who have just undergone surgery there.
The Right to Life Office moved to 2126 Inwood a year ago, and Humbarger said that she has seen "women leaving (the clinic) in apparent discomfort. Moreover, these women were unable to walk unassisted - apparently as the result of having undergone an abortion. These women had to walk down steps and across a parking lot to their vehicles. On each occasion, these women were being physically held up by a (clinic) employee and/or an unidentified person.
Also in Indiana, a Medicaid official claims Indiana's attempt to defund Planned Parenthood runs contrary to federal requirements.

India's FDA is cracking down on the illegal distribution of abortion drugs in an effort to stop sex selection abortions. This crackdown has led some chemists to stop stocking the pills entirely.
Gynaecologists in the city claim that following a crackdown by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on illegal sale of abortion pills to curb sex-selective abortions, chemists are reluctant to stock the pills, especially those prescribed to terminate a second trimester (between 12 and 20 weeks) pregnancy. The sex of a foetus can be determined during the second trimester.
