Our government is wanting to take out abortion completely eventually. I don't know if other states have done this, but Indiana is on it's way to becoming Pro-Life!!!!!!! I am very happy about this.
I do realize that Planned Parenthood does other things besides abortions, but they are the leading centers to do them, as well as hand out birth control to under-aged children (at least they do here in Terre Haute and the surrounding areas) and many of their other services can be provided at other clinics around Indiana for discounted prices.

Also, an update... as I mentioned before, he SIGNED it!!!! I know that many many many many people are cheering along with me here in the Hoosier state!
I can guarantee you just as many people are not cheering.

If someone doesn't want a baby, use contraceptive or don't have sex
. But unless it's for medical reasons, abortion shouldn't be used, in my opinion. That's why adoption is there. I think it's sad when there are so many couples unable to have children yet women decide to abort their unborn baby just because they can't handle another one or can't afford another one. Give the child to someone who can afford it. Now if the mother is in danger then maybe... that's a reason, depending on the danger of course.
Birth control can fail.
Would you have an abortion if you knew as soon as your child was born, he or she would die? Would you have one if you knew that he or she would die slowly while you were pregnant with him or her?
