A list of every legislator that voted yes to restricting women's rights with HEA 1337

 

HEA 1337 is law in Indiana effective July 1. The wide-sweeping bill has been called the strictest abortion law in the nation. The bill outlaws abortion entirely for a variety of reasons, adds additional barriers to access, and requires each aborted or miscarried fetus be buried or cremated.

Our editorial stance is that HEA 1337 does not protect the interests of pro-choice or anti-choice women. Simply put, HEA 1337 makes Indiana the most hostile state for women’s rights in the nation. Read our coverage of the bill here. 

Note nine Republican representatives voted no, as well as four Republican senators. 

Wendy McNamara (R - District 76) said on the floor of the House of her 'no' vote:

"I want to make it clear that voting no on this bill does not make me any less pro-life, it makes me a person who’s taking a second to examine a bill that hasn’t been vetted. I think the true champion today is somebody that understands the vote of conscience. Sometimes it takes a little bravery and courage all of its own. I try to make sure that everything I do is about protecting lives and making life better for one child at a time. I’m prepared to be dubbed as someone that is not pro-life because they will view [my vote] on this bill as something that is not 100 percent in support of life. I go with a peaceful heart because I know in my heart that I have saved children’s lives. I implore you to have the courage to say no knowing that when you go home, somebody will say ‘you’re not pro-life.’ I implore you to vote no with the knowledge that mailers will probably be sent out against you, not from your foes, but from your friends. I encourage you to stand up and say that you want to be a no. Policy matters and politics does not. This one vote does not change who you are, it makes you stronger. You will have made the right choice."
