INDIANAPOLIS — Republican Gov. Mike Pence once again has thrust Indiana into the national spotlight after signing into law Thursday a controversial abortion limitation.
House Enrolled Act 1337, which takes effect July 1, requires a pregnant woman who learns her child will be born with Down syndrome, another genetic disease or physical deformities that aren’t immediately lethal, to carry the pregnancy to term and give birth.
A doctor who performs an abortion knowing the woman’s motivation for terminating her pregnancy is due to a diagnosis, or potential diagnosis, of a genetic fetal anomaly or disability risks losing his or her medical license and is subject to civil financial penalties under the new law.
The statute also prohibits women from obtaining an abortion due to the gender, race, color, national origin or ancestry of the fetus.
