Abortion Bill Moving Through Indiana Legislature

by
Indiana State House
Indiana State House

Indiana senators dropped language from an abortion bill that would have required women who have the procedure to return to their doctors two weeks afterward for a second ultrasound confirming that the pregnancy was terminated.

The bill that will be voted on today in the Republican-dominated state Senate will still require one ultrasound before abortions.

If the bill passes in its current form, Indiana would become the ninth state to mandate that women seeking abortions first have ultrasounds.

The bill also requires clinics that prescribe the RU-486 abortion pill but not the surgical procedure to still meet state standards for surgical clinics.
