INDIANAPOLIS—Today SB 252, which expands Medicaid recipients’ access to long-acting reversible contraception like IUDs and implants, passed out of the Indiana Senate. The author of the bill, State Senator Shelli Yoder (D-Bloomington) offered the following response:

“In a state where nearly 50% of pregnancies are unplanned and women’s reproductive freedom is tightly restricted, this is a necessary step forward. This gives women another tool in the toolbox to plan their own families, build their careers, and live the lives they want in our state. I am thankful for the support and will continue my efforts to expand Hoosiers’ access to health and medical freedom.”
