Indiana HB 1134 (Rep. Nisly)

Indiana HB 1134:¬†Protection of life. Repeals the statutes authorizing and regulating abortion. Finds that human physical life begins when a human ovum is fertilized by a human sperm. Asserts a compelling state interest in protecting human physical life from the moment that human physical life begins. Redefines “human being” for purposes of the criminal code to conform to the finding that human physical life begins when a human ovum is fertilized by a human sperm. Makes other conforming changes.

Statement from Planned Parenthood: HB 1134 would ban and criminalize all abortions in Indiana. This legislation would be unconstitutional and directly in opposition to the viability criteria established in Roe v. Wade.
