An Indiana senate bill could place further restrictions on abortion in the state. Senate Bill 334 would make it illegal to perform an abortion if the decision is based on a fetus’s sex or disability; The Indiana Youth Institute has released the 2015 Kids Count data book, an assessment of childhood wellbeing across the state; The Monroe County Solid Waste Management District Citizens Advisory Committee identified a need for updated bylaws during a meeting on February 19th.
A bill known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act is working its way through the Indiana legislature. The law would provide protection to individuals, businesses and churches that deny services based on claims of religious belief. On Thursday, WFHB’s LGBTQI+ program, Bloomingout, discussed the bill with Steve Sanders, a law professor at Indiana University. The show was hosted by Erica Dorsey, Ryne Shadday and Jeff Jewel. We bring you a part of that conversation for today’s WFHB community report.
