EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A federal judge is weighing whether to block a new Indiana law that requires medical providers to give the state detailed information about women they treat for complications arising from abortions.

Planned Parenthood is seeking a preliminary injunction to block two provisions of the law before it takes effect on July 1. The organization argues that the new reporting rule is unconstitutional, as is a provision that requires annual inspections of abortion clinics.

The state says the law shouldn't be blocked from taking effect.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana sued the state on behalf of Indiana's Planned Parenthood affiliate.

ACLU legal director Ken Falk says the judge heard arguments from both sides Friday but didn't immediately make a decision. He says the judge also requested more information from both sides.
