Pence Signs Abortion Bill


This week is proving to be one of the most influential for women’s reproductive rights in Indiana. Earlier today, Governor Mike Pence signed into law Senate Bill 371, which expands the state’s legal definition of abortion to include chemically-induced abortions, which involve the woman taking a pill to terminate a pregnancy. Pence’s ratification of the bill comes just after the Federal Food and Drug Administration eased Plan B regulations, which is also known as the “morning after pill.” WFHB correspondent Wes Martin speaks with proponents of both sides of reproductive legislation in today’s Feature Exclusive.
