Any Indiana Abortion Law Debates Will Have to Wait Until 2022 Legislative Session

A recently passed Texas-based abortion law is getting the attention of Indiana lawmakers, but the debate on the subject will not begin on the subject until early 2022.

Posted: Sep 3, 2021 9:25 AM

Indiana's Republican-led legislature has approved numerous abortion restrictions over the past decade, but leaders say they will not rush to adopt a law similar to one recently passed in Texas.

Lawmakers will meet at the Indiana Statehouse for a session over the last two weeks of September, but it will be limited to redrawing Congressional and Legislative district maps.

Any abortion law debate will not take place until the regular session starts in January.

Several members have said they will keep a close eye on the Texas law, wanting to continue to make Indiana one of the most Pro-Life states in the country.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
