Wallace: New Indiana law requires doctors report complications ‘that can be tied back to abortion’

Americans United for Life Director of Legal Communications Deanna Wallace sat down with David Webb of the David Webb Show this week to talk about a new law in the Hoosier state that creates stricter reporting requirements for abortion-related complications.

“So, S340 basically says that doctors have to report to the state whenever they see a woman who is suffering from a complication that can be tied back to an abortion,” says Wallace. “So that includes immediate complications — whether she comes from the emergency room because she’s bleeding or she has some sort of laceration or if it’s a later date where she comes back and she’s suffering from depression …”

Indiana lawmakers in both the House and the Senate voted overwhelmingly to send the amended bill to Republican Gov. Eric J. Holcomb, who signed the new reporting requirements into law Sunday.
