Indiana House Bill (HB) 1211 would eliminate access to second trimester abortion care for Hoosiers in difficult medical situations. It prevents physicians from using their best medical judgment when providing abortion care, and potentially places pregnant people's health at risk. Those who need abortion care after 14 weeks would be forced to travel out of state to find a provider.
HB 1211 includes exceptions to protect the health or life of the pregnant person, but this bill does NOT include exceptions for rape or incest.
This bill is part of a larger effort to gradually ban abortion law by law, method by method.
