Indiana Senate Passes Bill That Would Criminalize Most Abortions

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.9

The GOP-controlled Indiana state Senate passed a measure Saturday to ban most abortions following hours of debate and discussion. The legislation would ban abortions from the time a fertilized egg implants in a uterus and allows exceptions in cases of rape, incest and when the mother’s life is at risk. But a woman seeking an abortion under the rape and incest exceptions would be required to sign a notarized affidavit attesting to the attack. The bill now heads to the House, which is also controlled by Republicans.
