Politicians at the state level have passed more than 400 restrictions on abortions since 2011, it says.

The ban, the most restrictive anti-abortion law in the country at the moment, passed the House by a vote of 75-34.

The measure would ban the procedure after about 11 weeks of pregnancy, except in medical emergencies. The provision likely is a direct result of former South Bend abortionist Ulrich Klopfer who was forced to close in 2015 after he allegedly failed to report suspected rapes of several teen girls to authorities.

Sen. Angela Burks Hill, a Republican from Picayune, called abortions after 15 weeks "barbaric" and "inhumane." Sen.

The bill also tightens the process for abortion licensing in IN by requiring that applicants disclose whether it has operated an abortion clinic that was closed due to health and safety concerns, whether a principal or staff members has been convicted of a felony, and whether a principal or staff member was ever employed by a facility owned or operated by the applicant that closed as a result of administrative or legal action.

"A 15-week abortion ban is an unconstitutional attempt", she said, "to limit access to safe and legal abortion". For example, it tossed out a North Dakota law that banned abortions as early as six weeks into a pregnancy and an Arkansas law that banned abortions at 12 weeks.

"The majority of abortion procedures performed after fifteen weeks' gestation are dilation and evacuation procedures which involve the use of surgical instruments to crush and tear the unborn child apart before removing the pieces of the dead child from the womb", the bill states.

Diane Derzis, who owns the clinic, has said it provides abortions as late as 18 weeks after pregnancy.

"To me, it's a medical issue not to be interfered with by the Legislature", Dawkins said. The opponents believe the decision opened a window for states to restrict abortion before a foetus is viable. "House Bill 1510 will help us achieve that goal", the governor tweeted on Tuesday, as reported by Associated Press. One is protecting the health and life of the mother.

It's unclear if a 15-week ban will move forward elsewhere. Gipson said lawmakers in Texas, Georgia, and "some Midwestern states" are exploring the idea.

"They're playing the short, immediate game in circuit courts where they just try and try again, and then they're also playing the long game where they're trying to change the composition of the Supreme Court", said Leslie McGorman, deputy policy director for NARAL Pro-Choice America, a national group supporting abortion rights.

"I think the court wants to stay out of this for a while", Forte said.

"The United States Supreme Court. has indicated that the state has a couple of interests when it comes to regulating abortion".

"If Anthony Kennedy has already stepped down, this would make ideal sense", Stone said.
