WIBC covered Todd’s remarks on protecting the unborn:
The Supreme Court is hearing arguments about Mississippi’s abortion law, which bans abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy. The court could roll back limits on abortion laws cemented by the reproductive rights case Roe v. Wade. It’s also possible that Roe v. Wade could be overturned altogether.
In a news conference on Tuesday, Indiana Republican Senator Todd Young said the United States of America is an “outlier when it comes to how we protect babies.”
“We are only one of seven countries around the world, one of seven countries, that allows abortion to take place past the point at which a baby can feel pain in the womb. We join the likes of the Chinese Communist Party and the dictator in North Korea in our policies,” said Young.
Young claims 80% of Americans oppose abortions beyond the point of which a child can feel pain. Activists on both sides of the abortion debate are rallying Wednesday in Jackson and Washington, D.C
“So, I look forward to welcoming other Hoosiers into this city (Washington, DC) as they descend on the nation’s capital, make their voices heard, and ensure that the voices of those who can’t speak for themselves will ultimately be heard as well,” said Young.
