Indiana becomes 1st state to approve abortion ban after overturning of Roe v. Wade

Global News published this video item, entitled “Indiana becomes 1st state to approve abortion ban after overturning of Roe v. Wade” – below is their description.

Indiana passed a near-total ban on abortion on Friday, becoming the first U.S. state to do so after the Supreme Court overturned the landmark abortion rights ruling Roe v. Wade.

The ban, which takes effect on Sept. 15, includes some exceptional situations where abortion is permitted. This includes in cases of rape and incest, before 10 weeks post-fertilization, if a fetus is diagnosed with a lethal anomaly and to protect the life and physical health of the mother.

Under the bill, abortions can only be performed in hospitals or outpatient centres owned by hospitals, meaning all abortion clinics will lose their licenses.

Jennifer Johnson reports on Indiana’s new law and on the reaction to the ban.
