Campbell: Reproductive care should be between women and their doctors, not lawmakers

News & Media

INDIANAPOLIS – State Rep. Chris Campbell (D-West Lafayette) today called for a separation of the legislature from women's personal medical decisions as a Statehouse Republican announced an intent to file Texas-style abortion ban legislation to be introduced during the 2022 Legislative Session.

Texas's Senate Bill 8, banning most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy and allowing for private citizens to sue abortion providers, went into effect on Wednesday (Sept. 1) and has yet to be blocked by the U.S. Supreme Court.

“A woman's reproductive care decisions should be between her and her doctor, just as any other health care decision,” Campbell said.

“Elected officials have no place in those decisions, most especially if they do not have healthcare expertise. I urge my colleagues across the aisle to allow Hoosier health care providers and Hoosier women to make the medical decisions that are best-suited for their personal well-being.”
