Supreme Court Strikes Down IN Abortion Law

(Washington, DC-AP) — The Supreme Court is striking down part of an Indiana abortion law signed by then-Governor Mike Pence. Today, the High Court affirmed the lower court ruling that invalidated part of the law that prohibited abortion because of the gender, race or disability of the fetus, such as Down syndrome.

The Supreme Court did uphold a portion of the law that required the fetal remains from abortions be buried or cremated. Pence signed the bill into law three months before then-candidate Donald Trump selected him to be his running mate in 2016.
