Activists Pushing For More States To Ban Abortions Based On Broader Criteria

Indiana will soon have some of the most sweeping abortion restrictions in the country. A new law that was passed last week makes it illegal for women to get an abortion because of a baby’s physical or mental disability, or because of race or gender. The law takes effect in July.

Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti talks with  Leah Samuel, a reporter with STAT, about Indiana’s new law and how anti-abortion groups like Americans United For Life are now pushing other states to consider similar bans.
