Your action is needed immediately in urging Gov. Eric Holcomb to order all elective surgical abortions halted in Indiana as part of the state’s emergency response to the Coronavirus pandemic. 

In spite of state and federal directives ordering the suspension of elective surgical procedures, Indiana’s surgical abortion centers are continuing to do a booming business.

These surgical abortion clinics are using much-needed medical supplies such as masks, gowns, gloves, and blood supplies in a time of critical shortages. In addition, crowded waiting rooms and recovery rooms may offer prime conditions for the spread of the Coronavirus, placing all Hoosiers at risk. 

Yesterday, representatives of 30,000 physicians issued a national call for the suspension of all elective abortions in accordance with current CDC recommendations pertaining to elective procedures and office visits. 

Texas, Ohio, Louisiana, Maryland and Mississippi have already taken action to suspend elective surgical abortions in those states.

Please take action now by contacting Governor Holcomb.
