Passed Indiana House by a vote of 53-41
INDIANAPOLIS – On Monday House Bill (HB) 1128 passed the Indiana House of Representatives by a vote of 53-41. Authored by Rep. Ron Bacon, HB 1128 notifies Hoosier women that a chemical abortion may be able to be reversed if she changes her mind shortly after beginning the abortion.
HB 1128 also makes minor changes to the state’s termination of pregnancy report, strengthens health and safety standards at abortion facilities and provides help to women being sexually trafficked.
“There are babies in Indiana alive today because their mothers regretted starting a chemical abortion,” said Sue Swazye Liebel, Vice President of Public Affairs for Indiana Right to Life. “We are pleased HB 1128 passed the Indiana House and we will advocate strongly for its passage in the Indiana Senate. The main goal of HB 1128 is to provide information. We thank the hundreds of Hoosiers who contacted their Indiana representatives to pass HB 1128.”
On Feb. 15, Indiana House Public Policy committee members heard testimony regarding abortion pill reversals. Testifying to the medical science and the success of using an abortion pill reversal protocol were two Indiana doctors, Casey Reising, M.D. of Indianapolis and Christina Francis, M.D. of Fort Wayne. Both have helped women go on to deliver healthy babies after they regretted taking the first pill in the chemical abortion process.
Committee members also heard from a woman who participated in the abortion pill reversal process after regretting her decision to abort. She now has a healthy son.
Francis refuted claims that abortion reversal is “junk science” in a column published by the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel today.
Anyone who has taken the first abortion pill and wishes to stop the abortion is urged to immediately visit www.abortionpillreversal.com or call the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline at 877-558-0333.
