Indiana to Craft Abortion Law Soon

(Indianapolis, IN) - People are now wondering what Indiana's abortion law will look like in response to the U.S. Supreme Court allowing states to decide.


Hoosiers should find out soon.


Governor Eric Holcomb said the state legislature would take up the matter during a special session beginning July 6.


Holcomb didn't specify what he felt the state's abortion law should be crafted but said he is pro-life, and there's an opportunity now to protect the sanctity of life further, and "that's what we're going to do."


State Representative Jim Pressel of Rolling Prairie did not offer an opinion on what he wanted the law to contain.


"It's too early to speculate on what form any legislation may take, but I'm ready to go to work and look forward to having discussions with constituents and my fellow legislators about what this Supreme Court decision means for Indiana," Pressel said.
