Indiana Senate To Consider Bill Restricting Abortions

A bill preventing some abortions before 20 weeks of pregnancy passed a Senate committee Wednesday.

But some say the bill is blatantly unconstitutional. 

The bill is virtually identical to one that didn't pass last year. It bans abortions less than 20 weeks into term, but only if the patient's motivation is based on race, gender, disability, or the possibility of disability.
