Indiana: Almost Complete Abortion Ban Passed

In the US state of Indiana, abortion will be allowed only in exceptional cases in the future, including after rape or incest cases.

Indiana’s legislature has put an almost complete ban on abortion. Indiana is the first state to pass a new law with stricter rules following the Supreme Court’s landmark decision on abortion.

It allows abortion only in exceptional cases: after rape, in cases of incest, when the fetus is not viable or there is a serious health risk to the mother.

The Republican-dominated Senate approved the law by a vote of 28 to 19 Friday evening (local time). It was later signed by Republican Governor Eric Holscomb. It has been carefully considered which exceptions should apply, he said in a statement. These will take into account “unimaginable circumstances facing a woman or an unborn child”. This law is going to come into force from 15 September.

At the end of June, the Supreme Court of America Overturned a landmark ruling that protected abortion rights in the US Constitution for nearly 50 years. Since this right is no longer protected by federal law, states can now impose broad restrictions and prohibitions. Republican states in particular have already enacted restrictive abortion laws. The result of the Supreme Court’s decision is also a patchwork of rules.
