Earlier this year, Pence also sided with religious conservatives in the debate over expanding civil rights protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Hoosiers. Thursday’s actions saw the governor again taking a hard conservative line — this time on abortion.

The controversial and potentially unconstitutional measure further restricts abortion in Indiana — already one of the most restrictive states in the nation. It does so by prohibiting a woman from seeking an abortion solely because her fetus could be born with a disability such as Down syndrome. It also restricts a woman from terminating her pregnancy solely because of the gender or race of the fetus.


Sounds to me like “epic stupid”. Disabilities and unfavorable race or gender are among the best reasons for abortion. Indiana should not seek to emulate India here.

Of course, I 100% support North Carolina’s recent bill to stave off its tide of poz.
