On Friday August 5, Senate Bill No. 1 (SB1) was signed into law by Indiana Governor Holcomb and becomes effective in the State as of September 15, 2022. This law makes changes to when an abortion may be performed legally in Indiana.

While there are specific time frames and conditions that must be met in order for the abortion to be performed, generally, this law states that abortion is legal when:

  1. the abortion is necessary to prevent any serious health risk of the pregnant woman or to save the pregnant woman’s life;
  2. the fetus is diagnosed with a lethal fetal anomaly; or
  3. the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest.
