Governor To Push for Stricter Abortion Laws

Statewide – Indiana was not one of the 13 states with trigger laws already in place, which are laws on the books that allow an abortion ban to go into effect immediately or in short order after Roe was overturned. For Indiana, stricter abortion laws are still very possible. Indiana has been named as one of four states expected to try banning abortion now that Roe has been overturned. Gov. Eric Holcomb quickly issued a statement and said state leaders will consider tightening Indiana’s abortion laws during a special legislative session that starts July 6. The Supreme Court’s ruling to over turn Roe v. Wade has no impact on the ability to have an abortion in Illinois. The Supreme Court returned authority to states to prohibit abortion on Friday.
