Go Indiana!

I often hate this state. Via feministing.com:

A bill filed this week in the Indiana House would make abortion illegal--even for victims of rape and incest. How lovely.

House Bill 1096, proposed by Rep. Troy A. Woodruff, would only allow for abortion if a woman’s health or life would be “permanently impaired.” The bill would make it a felony to perform any other abortions; doctors who did could face up to eight years in prison.

This is, of course, being deliberately done so that the Roberts court ('Now with new Alito flavour!') can overturn Roe. Fantastic!
