Next, Indiana

I'm still having technical problems. So please go over to feministe and read her great coverage of the latest reproductive health prosecutorial fishing expedition, here, and here.

One quick note, apropos:

Judge Loretta Rush, the juvenile judge in Tippecanoe County, said Monday that she wasn’t aware of the Planned Parenthood lawsuit. But she said the public would be surprised to know the number of Lafayette-area girls, age 13 and under, who become pregnant.


Looking at the most recent data (2002) for Indiana:

  • Total # of pregnancies reported in the 10-14 age group: 196 (counties are listed, but I couldn't find Lafayette).

    [Update: A reader points out that Lafayette is in Tippecanoe county (1 pregnancy).]

  • Number of births in the 10-14 age group: 131 births (out of 84,839 births).

  • Father's age for the 10-14 age group (most, 102, are listed as unknown).
