HB 1217 will help stop coerced abortions in Indiana

Take action now to encourage your state representative to support House Bill 1217 to protect women and babies from coerced abortions.

The Indiana House will soon vote on House Bill 1217. This bill would make it a felony in Indiana to coerce a woman into having an abortion. It would also hold abortion clinics accountable for failing to report coercion to law enforcement.

According to a study published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, nearly 75 percent of the 987 American women who participated in an after-abortion survey admitted that they experienced “at least subtle forms of pressure to terminate their pregnancies.”
