So by making it mandatory that a fetus has to be cremated or buried, doesn't this put an unreasonable financial burden on the woman and family?
What about the father's rights? Or is he not given any until the mom wants money?? When does the baby become his where he can have a say as well? If a dad doesn't pay child support he goes to jail. Should a mom go to jail if she aborts a baby the father wants?
I think Pence just guaranteed that Indiana will go blue this election and for sure Pence will be out of a job. He is a disaster to Indiana. I am livid that a bunch of males who never had to deal with pregnancy or rape etc can make leg decisions about women's rights and bodies. He has ensured that more babies will be born in Indiana that are not wanted, possibly will be abused or killed. We will need to build orphanages that will house and the state pay for the care of unwanted children. Sad to say but I think this bill will cause more harm to children after birth than possibly ending the pregnancy before birth. I hate to think of a child enduring abuse because it was not wanted or reminds someone of a horrible experience. Pence and all Indiana lawmakers need to go...Let's go blue Indiana, time to change colors. We have been a red state way too long and it is the color of humiliation and anger. Out Pence
60% of women seeking an abortion already have kids. 1 in 3 women will have an abortion in her lifetime.
70% of women who get abortions are Christians.
The utterly disgusting lie that it is only young slutty teens is just another myth pushed to justify misogyny.
Women in every country, every race, every religion, every age have abortions.
From Uganda to Germany to France to Russia to China and Japan, women have abortions regardless of the law.
Criminalizing abortion does nothing to reduce them, it just kills and stigmatizes women.
Anti-abortion is not pro-life. It is anti-woman.
Roe Vs Wade was not the beginning of abortions, it was the end of women dying from abortions.
No woman owes you a reason for why she needs an abortion. It is her legal and constitutionally protected right to have control over her own body.
Don't like abortions, don't have one.
Abortion isn't used for any other reason but to kill an innocent life because the younger generation can't keep their legs closed. Everyone uses rape and incest and medical conditions to justify their abortion. Its a cheep copout. If you actually look at how many rapes are committed in the US and incest compared to abortions the justification isn't there. Most abortions are either by teenagers or 20 something's that aren't involved in a relationship. What about the fathers right to want to keep his kid? Why can't that happen?
We have fetal homicide laws because if the life is lost after an attack on the mother and the life is wanted, that's wrong. But if the life isn't wanted at all, it's perfectly fine to take the life. Hypocrites..
Abortion on demand, any time for any reason? Where do women's rights end?
I find it quite unsurprising that most of the people speaking against this article are men. Not your uterus, not your choice.
Any one saying that this article is influenced by left-wing radicals clearly didn't read the article. All of the quotes from government officials were from republicans who thought that the bill would do some good until it was twisted and warped by amendments added as it went through the process of a bill.
Also, to HoosierforFreedom, I suggest you actually read the article. No where does it say that HEA 1337 outlaws abortion. However, it does say that it will wreak havoc on the many women in Indiana who, like me, will at some point face the tragedy of a miscarriage. My own mother faced ridicule from her family for having a miscarriage and not being able to let the fetus pass naturally. I can only imagine how much worse that would have been for her had this bill been passed during that time.
It's not your body. Taking a life is not for you to decide. You are killing your species for convenience. That is cowardice and bull crap.
Good to see all the Democrats voting to support women, including some who have previously voted anti-choice. Also thanks to the Republicans who stood for women and against their party's abysmal record on reproductive rights. This legislation goes far beyond the usual knee-jerk Republican hatred of women, as it will force women to give birth to dead fetuses and children who are guaranteed very brief and painful lives. This is the party who does not support funding for special education, childcare, or health care: truly the anti-life, anti-child, and anti-woman party. These despicable people absolutely do not represent the views of Hoosiers, and need to be soundly defeated in the next election.
My fathet, Coach Phil Webster is running for State Senate in district 35 (Wayne, Decatur, and most of Plainfield). His opponent is Mike Young, who has been in the legislature for 30 years, and was a key sponser of this bill (and RFRA).
If you live in this district, and/or you want to join us in taking back OUR state, please check us out on Facebook,
We'll need people to help knock on doors, make phone calls, drive people downtown for early voting, etc...
I highly encourage everyone who is bashing Govenor Pence and HEA 1337 to actually go and read the bill. No where does it say that abortions are illegal. Does it restrict reasons for them yes, but outlaw them no. Do not believe everything these left wing journalists write.
Reading the list I see mostly men's names. Why in 2016 do men still want to believe they know what is best for a women and if she don't agree that's ok they (men) can and will FORCE women to their way of thinking. How ridiculous!
There is no shady side to an abortion.. There is a dark hole in your life forever. You're in the biggest light you've ever been in but then decide you need the dark. Id prefer the shade then the black I feel and see everyday. If you don't understand that then you're the one who needs questioned. Not me. Not anyone.
It's no ones business or right to question this choice.
I will happily open up my home in Chicago to ANY woman seeking an abortion and needed a place to stay, free of charge. Fuck everyone.
Disappointed to see both my Senate and House representatives voted in favor of this filth.
This article seems biased with these stories...
I think this bill is not to promote abortions but to uncover the details of the process of an abortion and people against it are against the uncovering of the shady side of abortions.
