IN: Senate passes near-total abortion ban

Source: USA Today

“Republicans in the Indiana Senate narrowly voted Saturday to ban nearly all abortion in the state in a rare weekend session, sending the bill to the House after a contentious week of arguments over whether to allow exceptions for rape and incest. The vote puts Indiana on track to be one of the first states in the nation to pass new abortion restrictions after the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that had protected women’s right to an abortion for 50 years.” (07/30/22)
