Indiana has become the first state in the nation to pass new legislation restricting access to abortions since the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in June that overturned Roe v. Wade.
The Indiana Legislature on Friday approved the near-total abortion ban with some exceptions, including in cases of rape, incest, and to protect the life and physical health of the mother.
Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb immediately signed the bill.
