CURRENT ACTIONS

URGENT

Abortion is currently legal and available in Indiana.

The abortion ban is not scheduled to take effect until September 15, 2022. Learn more about local abortion options.

The expedited special session process denied the majority of Hoosiers the power to decide our abortion rights.

The ban passed the Senate on July 29.

The ban passed the House Committee on Courts and Criminal Code on August 2.

The ban was passed through the House, concurred, and signed by the Governor on August 5.

See how General Assembly members voted and how fast the ban (SB1ss) was passed.

The Indiana GOP has made a grievous and shameful decision to ban abortion - tell them you won't forget.

Sample script: My name is _____, I live in [city, town, district], and I oppose your abortion ban. Abortion bans are dangerous, harmful, and fail to represent the majority of Hoosiers like me.

 

Places with abortion restrictions are dangerous for pregnant people. Banning abortion will not improve our infant and maternal mortality rate, which is one of the highest in the country.

 

We must invest in Hoosier families by trusting and supporting people to make their own decisions. The right to decide if and when to parent is fundamental to our freedom.

I will be voting to remove you and your party from office.
