State Senate Bill 340 has made it out of committee and is headed to the Indiana Senate Floor. This draconian bill would require Indiana women seeking an abortion to report extensive personal and private information to the state, including marital status, education level, and date of last menstrual period. It also would impose additional requirements on abortion clinics requiring them t...o report any complications arising from an abortion to the state department of health and require women undergoing medication abortions to sign a form saying that they have been told of the manufacuturers' instructions regarding the use of that drug.

Please call your state senator at 317-232-9416 and tell them that if/when SB340 comes to the Indiana Senate floor to vote NO.
