Advocates on both sides of the abortion debate say the U.S. Supreme Court doesn’t appear any closer to overturning Roe v. Wade after its decision in an Indiana case Tuesday.

An Indiana University law professor says the sweeping abortion legislation Governor Mike Pence signed into law last week is unconstitutional.

The bill includes a long list of provisions, including a ban on abortions solely because of the fetus’ sex, race or disability.

Indiana University Law Professor Dawn Johnsen says that goes against the Supreme Court’s decision in the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade.
