Indiana Legislature becomes first to approve abortion ban in post-Roe era Admin (default) , BestFlight.ca • Updated 2022-08-06

The measure now goes to Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb, who has not indicated whether he will sign it.

Indiana was among the earliest Republican-run state legislatures to debate tighter abortion laws after the Supreme Court ruling in June that removed constitutional protections for the procedure. It is the first state to pass a ban through both chambers, after West Virginia lawmakers on July 29 passed up the chance to be that state.
