April 11, 2013

INDIANAPOLIS – Today, Senate Bill 371 concurrence passed the Indiana Senate by a vote of 35-14. The bill now advances to Governor Pence’s desk for his signature.

“We commend the Indiana Senate for passing SB 371, a bill that provides crucial oversight to the chemical abortion industry,” stated Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “We look forward to the bill advancing to Governor Pence and we welcome his signature on this important bill.”

SB 371 introduces oversight into the chemical abortion industry by including chemical abortions in the definition of abortion in Indiana law. Currently, an abortion facility that performs only chemical-type abortions does not have be licensed or inspected. SB 371 will require chemical abortion facilities to meet the same requirements as surgical abortion facilities in such areas as reporting standards, physician oversight, cleanliness standards and building accessibility.
