Indiana Abortion Law

Indiana’s abortion law has changed substantially since the legalization of abortion on demand since 1973, thanks to the hard work of a lot of individuals and elected officials.

Some key points about Indiana’s abortion law:

  • Abortion is legal for the full nine months of pregnancy in Indiana.
  • Freestanding abortion centers may only do abortions legally in the first trimester.
  • Indiana maintains a ban on partial-birth abortion.
  • Indiana law maintains key informed consent provisions for women considering abortion but is lacking in a requirement that the information be provided in writing.
  • Indiana law requires parental consent for girls under 18-years of age.
  • Abortion counselors must inform a woman considering abortion about the ability to see an ultrasound image of her baby and the ability to hear her baby’s heartbeat.

In 2010, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) gave Indiana the grade of “F” for being a state that it does not consider friendly to unrestricted abortion access.

Currently there are abortion centers operating in the Indiana communities of Merrillville, South Bend, Fort Wayne, Lafayette, Indianapolis, and Bloomington.
