Indiana Abortion Bill Requires Patients To Receive Questionable Information About Abortion

The Huffington Post: Indiana Bill Would Force Doctors To Tell Women That Having An Abortion May Lead To Breast Cancer, by Amanda Terkel:

Indiana Hundreds of protesters rallied at the Indiana statehouse on Tuesday in opposition to restrictive abortion measures that would, among other things, require doctors to tell pregnant women about a controversial theory that says having an abortion could lead to an increased risk of breast cancer.

House Bill 1210, introduced by Indiana state Rep. Eric Turner (R), would make abortions illegal after 20 weeks. The Senate has already passed a similar bill, but it is awaiting action in the House.

The bill would also require physicians to inform a pregnant woman seeking an abortion that the fetus could feel pain and require patients to view an ultrasound. A patient could get out of doing so only if she stated her refusal in writing. . . .
