The Republican supermajority in the state legislature is expected to pass some sort of abortion ban during this special session
INDIANAPOLIS — This past March, 100 Republican state lawmakers signed a letter sent to Gov. Eric Holcomb, asking for a special session if abortion rights were overturned by the US Supreme Court.
The Republican supermajority in the legislature is expected to pass some sort of abortion ban during the session. Insiders within the party tell 13News if there are any exceptions to that ban, they would be very few.
Those exceptions could include pregnancies in cases of rape, incest or where the mother’s life is in danger.
Update: The special session has been postponed to July 25.
