Wesco Statement on IDOH Denial of South Bend Abortion Provider application

STATEHOUSE (January 10, 2018) Rep. Tim Wesco applauded the Indiana Department of Health for denying an application of Whole Women’s Health in South Bend under the authority granted it by Indiana law, specifically IC 16-21-2-11.

“Whole Women’s health has clearly demonstrated itself to be a disreputable and irresponsible organization,” said Rep. Wesco. “I support Indiana’s laws that require abortion clinics to be licensed and regulated. Unfortunately, there is currently a bill that would repeal these much needed regulations and I oppose such misguided efforts which would be detrimental to the health of women and the cause of life in Indiana.”  

Late last year, Rep. Wesco joined with other area Legislators in a letter to the Governor urging the denial of the application.
