Indiana Senate Approves Misinformed Consent Bill for Abortion

Indianapolis Star: Indiana Senate OKs abortion bill:

The Senate voted 39-9 today to require that pregnant women considering an abortion be given information about the possibility of fetal pain and when life begins.

Under Senate Bill 146, sponsored by Sen. Patricia Miller, R-Indianapolis, women would be told that medical opinions differ on whether the fetus feels pain. They also would be told that life begins when human sperm penetrates the human ovum and the cells begin to divide and grow.
The bill now moves to the House.  Here's a link to SB 146 (bill text and tracking).
