House backs tighter abortion pill rules

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indiana House of Representatives passed a bill Tuesday afternoon that creates new regulations for the use of the abortion drug known as RU-486.

The vote was 70-25 for the bill that opponents see as a new effort to restrict abortion in Indiana.  Planned Parenthood says the measure will lead to the closure of an abortion clinic in Lafayette.

The state Senate must still agree to changes in the bill.
