Indiana Governor Signs New Law Restricting Abortions


On Friday, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed Senate Enrolled Act 1 (full text). Under the new law, Indiana’s former limit on abortions after 20 weeks or viability (whichever is sooner) is amended to allow abortions in that time period only when necessary to prevent a serious health risk to the pregnant woman or to save her life, or the fetus is diagnosed with a fatal abnormality. Abortions may be performed during the first 10 weeks of pregnancy when the result of rape or incest. Parental consent for abortion for a minor is not required in the case of rape or incest. The law does not apply to in vitro fertilizations. ABC News reports on the new law.
