Indiana governor to sign substantial pro-life bill
Indiana House Bill 1210 has successfully passed the House and is going to Governor Mitch Daniels, who is intending to sign it into law. The Bill includes the most substantial pro-life legislation that Indiana has seen since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in the United States. It would ban abortions past the 20th week of pregnancy, require women considering abortion to receive full information about the affects of the procedure in writing, and de-fund Planned Parenthood and any other organizations that receive state tax money and provide abortions among their services. Planned Parenthood is threatening to sue. The Alliance Defense Fun have volunteered their services to Gov. Daniels should that come to pass. In response to Planned Parenthood's threats, Daniels said, “Any organization affected by this provision can resume receiving taxpayer dollars immediately by ceasing or separating its operations that perform abortions.” Read more here.
