Democrats across America are working to protect abortion, in light of the death of Roe v. Wade.
But in many red states, lawmakers are moving fast to enact pro-life measures. One state has topped them all, however, to implement a “near-total” abortion ban.
Indiana lawmakers move forward with a pro-life law in light of the Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade. On Friday, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed a near-total abortion ban into law during the final day of the state legislature’s two-week special session.
The law grants exceptions for the procedure for cases of incest and rape before 10 weeks post-fertilization. This only if giving birth harms the mother and if the fetus shows signs of a deadly illness.
Democrats are melting down over Indiana’s “near-total” abortion ban, signed into law by their governor.
The law prohibits all forms of abortion, aside from very specific instances. A woman can only get an abortion in the case of rape and incest.
And this can only be done if the birth causes harm to the mother and if the fetus shows signs of a deadly illness.
Such strong limits will ensure very few abortions are performed in the state.
Democrats lament these kinds of limits on abortion, claiming they violate women’s rights.
What the left does not acknowledge is that there are millions of women who oppose abortion. And that the Supreme Court ruling granted the states the power to decide abortion law.
Which means, that voters can now decide the fate of this practice, at the state level. Not an all-powerful court or the federal government.
That’s what Democrats really hate: more power given to the people.
Democrats seem obsessed with forcing their rules and demands onto us. If we don’t agree with their agenda, then they’ll find another way to make it happen.
That, ironically, is the opposite of democracy.
In this case, the voters elected Indiana leaders who promised to pass this kind of law. If Democrats hate it so much, they just need to convince Indiana voters to elect pro-abortion leaders.
Let’s see how that works out for them.
- Indiana’s governor signed a “near-total” abortion ban into law.
- The law prohibits abortions except in very rare cases.
- This comes after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
