Indiana House approves abortion reversal bill

Back To Front Page


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana House has approved a measure on a so-called Ďabortion reversalí procedure despite concerns from both sides of the aisle that the method hasnít been sufficiently vetted.

Under Republican Rep. Rob Baconís measure, the State Health Department would create a form for abortion providers to provide to women considering drug-induced abortions. It would give women information on potentially stopping the procedure midway through, with a disclaimer that no medical studies have confirmed itís possible.

Supporters argue the information could give a woman a chance to save her baby. But critics, including some anti-abortion Republican women, contend itís irresponsible to promote a procedure that hasnít been scientifically proven to work.

The measure passed 54-41 Monday, with 17 Republicans voting no.
