Lanane Condemns Senate’s Passage of SB 1

Published On: July 30th, 2022Categories: Caucus, Tim Lanane

INDIANAPOLIS—Today the Indiana Senate passed Senate Bill 1, a near-total ban on abortion with limited exceptions. State Senator Tim Lanane (D-Anderson) offered the following response:

“This bill is ugly. It doesn’t matter how you dress it up, how Republicans amend around the corners: anything less than a strip and insert of current code does not reflect the wishes of most Hoosiers. This bill is the product of the excess Republican majority’s hubris—their determination to strip women of 50 years of bodily autonomy, restrict access to healthcare and foist their narrow religious views on others will kill women. The only acceptable fate for this bill is defeat. For the sake of Hoosier women, for the sake of healthcare providers, for the sake of liberty and choice, I hope we kill this bill before August 14.”
