New laws hold abortion clinics accountable

abortion clinic examination roomA couple of new laws in Indiana are forcing the abortion industry in the state to be transparent.

Ryan McCann of the Indiana Family Institute says the first law requires a new abortion clinic to disclose violations and criminal activities in other states before it can open for business in the Hoosier State.

"Before this law," McCann explains, "if an abortion clinic wanted to open up in the state of Indiana, they didn't have to reveal past problems or violations, or even criminal activity by their staff members in other states."

A second law requires abortionists and hospitals to report any complications from abortion. McMann says that law comes after years of pro-abortion claims that abortion is safe - then hide the complications.  

"And then there's a problem," he warns. "And they go to the emergency room, not the abortion clinic, and so we feel like a lot of times the reporting of complications and things are not accurately put together."

The new reporting requirement will allow the state to assess the information and get a clearer idea of complications stemming from abortions, both surgical and chemical.

Gov. Eric Holcomb has signed both bills into law.
