Indiana becomes first state post-Roe to pass law banning most abortions

The Indiana House passed a Republican-sponsored bill on Aug. 5 that would ban abortion at all stages of pregnancy with limited exceptions.

Gov. Eric Holcomb on Friday signed a bill that would ban most abortions in Indiana — making it the first state to pass a restrictive law against the procedure since Roe v. Wade was overturned this summer.

The Indiana House and Senate passed the GOP-sponsored bill earlier Friday.
