INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indiana state Senate Thursday voted 35-to-14 to send a bill to the governor that creates new regulations for use of the abortion pill RU-486.
It's the pill that can be taken up to nine weeks after conception. The bill requires that any clinic administering the pill has to meet the same requirements as a surgical clinic.
Opponents to the bill say it's nothing more than an attempt to further restrict abortion in Indiana.
Planned Parenthood of Indiana says the bill will force it to close a clinic in Lafayette.
Gov. Mike Pence said last week he looks forward to signing it.
