The Overturning of Roe v. Wade
In 1973, the Supreme Court ruled it a constitutional right for women to receive elective abortions. In June 2022, the Supreme Court overruled this 1973 decision and now the power to decide on abortion laws was handed back to the people of each state.
If Considering Abortion in Indiana
Much has changed this year when it comes to abortion access in the U.S. So what does this mean for Indiana? As of September 15th, Indiana’s abortion laws shifted from elective abortions being legal up to 20 weeks gestation to abortion being outlawed unless in very specific cases.
Many women are confused about abortion access in their state, so we want to help you understand the facts. The Indiana General Assembly shares that the new state laws completely restrict abortion except for cases such as:
- Fatal fetal anomalies
- When a woman’s life is in danger
