Indiana passes near-total ban on abortion, first state to do so after the fall of Roe v. Wade https://t.co/2vXmtSUo2K

“Near total?” Hold Arkansas’s beer.
In Indiana, abortions are permitted:
In cases of rape and incest.
To protect the life and physical health of the mother.
If a fetus is diagnosed with a lethal anomaly.
A rape victim need not swear out an affidavit attesting to an attack to qualify.
None of these exceptions is allowed in Arkansas law, which, if not the cruelest law in the country, is tied with others. The Indiana law is still a bad law. There will be no abortion providers in Indiana, which will complicate treatment for women with problem pregnancies. Arkansas is still much worse.
