United States: Indiana bans abortion, the White House denounces a “radical” measure
The White House denounced the almost total ban on abortion in this state, the first to have voted on a new law in this direction since the Supreme Court decision. The law passed by the Indiana local assembly to decide to ban abortion except in cases of rape, incest or if the mother’s life is in danger.
The White House on Saturday vehemently denounced the almost total ban on abortion in Indiana, this US state having been the first to have voted on a new law in this direction since the Supreme Court decision. “This is a radical new measure taken by Republican elected officials to deprive women of their reproductive rights and freedom,” blasted White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre.
Eventually, abortion banned in half of the states
The governor of this conservative northern state signed into law on Friday evening the law passed by his local assembly a few hours earlier prohibiting abortion except in cases of rape, incest or if the mother’s life is in danger. It will come into force on September 15. Anticipating the Supreme Court’s decision, several other states had already passed so-called “trigger” laws in recent months, which had come into force and banned abortion as soon as the judges had changed their jurisprudence.
Eventually, abortion will be almost impossible in half of the 50 states of the country, especially in the south and the more religious center. Conversely, progressive states are seeking to sacral abortion rights and voters in California, Michigan, Nevada and Vermont will, in turn, vote this year on protective measures. The voters of a conservative state, Kansas, themselves created a surprise on Tuesday by voting in favor of maintaining the constitutional guarantee of the right to ABORTION. The spokeswoman for the US executive urged all “Americans across the country to make their voices heard” on this issue.
