Indiana Senate approves sweeping pro-life bill, defunds Indiana abortion businesses

April 20, 2011

Indiana Right to Life is applauding the Indiana Senate for Tuesday’s passage of House Bill 1210, a sweeping pro-life bill that removes all state-directed funding from Indiana abortion businesses, protects pain-capable unborn children beginning at 20-weeks, opts-out Indiana from abortion coverage under state health exchanges required under the new federal health law, improves the scope of information provided to women considering abortion, and requires doctors who do abortions to maintain local hospital admitting privileges.

The bill now goes back to the Indiana House for concurrence.

“The Indiana Senate is sending a resounding message that our state is solidly behind policies that respect the sanctity of life,” states Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter. “This is a monumental day for unborn children, their moms, and for Hoosier taxpayers.”
