Indiana becomes first state post-Roe to pass law banning most abortions

(CNN) Gov. Eric Holcomb on Friday signed a bill that would ban most abortions in Indiana — making it the first state to pass a restrictive law against the procedure since Roe v. Wade was overturned this summer.

The Indiana House and Senate passed the GOP-sponsored bill earlier Friday.

The new law provides exceptions for when the life of the mother is at risk and for fatal fetal anomalies, up to 20 weeks post-fertilization. It also allows exceptions for some abortions if the pregnancy was a result of rape or incest. It will go into effect on September 15.
