INDIANAPOLIS— Today, Republicans voted to pass an extreme near-total ban on abortion. State Senator Jean Breaux (D-Indianapolis) issued the following statement after the passage of SB 1:

“This is yet another disastrous day for Hoosier women as Republicans in the Senate moved a step closer to taking away a woman’s right to choose. This bill will do real harm to women, their families and healthcare providers in our state. I pray it dies in the House.”
