Director of proposed South Bend abortion clinic accused of violating Indiana law

Indiana Right To Life officials are accusing the director of a proposed abortion clinic in South Bend of not following the state’s abortion reporting rules.

Specifically, the vice president of policy enforcement for Indiana Right to Life, Cathie Humbarger, says Doctor Jeffrey Glazer did not comply with a state law that aims to protect girls younger than 16 from sex abuse by requiring reporting of procedures within three days.

It’s a law that went into effect in July 2017 and updates a previous law that required reporting for girls under 14.

The nonprofit behind the clinic, Whole Woman’s Health Alliance, is appealing the denial of its license application for the clinic on Lincolnway West. The company’s founder tells the South Bend Tribune that Indiana Right to Life’s campaign is an “intimidation tactic.”
