Indiana Likely to Ban Abortions Based on Fetal Disabilities

March 24, 2016

(Reuters) – Indiana is likely to become the second U.S. state to prohibit abortions based on the diagnosis of the fetus with a disability such as Down syndrome. Republican Governor Mike Pence has until the end of the day to sign or veto the bill, which was ushered through the Republican-led legislature over the last three months. The bill still becomes law on Friday if the governor does not sign it but fails to veto it.
