UPDATE (July 13, 2022):

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (ADAMS) – Indiana’s governor says the state’s new abortion law won’t be a free for all.

On Tuesday, Governor Eric Holcomb said he is letting lawmakers come up with a plan for abortions in the state post-Roe.

The governor earlier said there would be no ‘red lines’ for the law – but said that means he is not imposing any demands on lawmakers as they write the new law. He says that comment did not mean that lawmakers can do whatever they want.

Lawmakers are due back at the statehouse in two weeks to begin work on passing a new abortion law for Indiana.
