INDIANAPOLIS—On Wednesday, Republican Senators outlined their plans to restrict abortion and which committee it will be assigned to. State Senator J.D. Ford (D-Indianapolis) offered the following statement:

“The legislation the supermajority offered today is extreme and way out of step with Hoosiers. The legislation offers the bare minimum exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother. Unfortunately, it strictly regulates a woman’s right to choose and doesn’t include expectations for the health of the mother. I will strongly oppose this legislation. The right to privacy is one of the most important in a free society and I trust women to make this deeply personal decision, not the Government.”
