National Right to Life Stands with Indiana Right to Life in Opposing Indiana’s SB 1

WASHINGTON — The following is a statement from National Right to Life:

National Right to Life stands with its Indiana affiliate, Indiana Right to Life, in opposing SB 1.

Indiana’s SB 1 is a phony bill that would do the opposite of what its proponents claim that it would do. SB 1 would fail to protect lives and endanger vulnerable women and their unborn children.

SB 1 was drafted without consultation from any state, local or national pro-life group or expert. Instead,

SB 1 was drafted with the advice from organizations and experts who have made abortion on demand part of their mission.

SB 1 contains vague language and ill-defined terms which would actually protect abortion instead of protecting unborn children. SB 1 also would undermine existing protections for unborn children with disabilities.

The pro-life movement calls upon pro-life legislators in the Indiana legislature to reject this travesty of a bill.
