Kamala Harris si recherà in visita nell'Indiana mentre i legislatori statali si preparano a discutere la proposta di legge sul divieto di aborto

Harris dovrebbe arrivare all'aeroporto internazionale di Indianapolis lunedì mattina prima di partire per la Biblioteca di Stato dell'Indiana, dove si riunirà con i legislatori statali. Their discussions will likely center around a series of abortion-related bills Indiana Republicans proposed on July 20 quella ban abortion with some exceptions and expands some contraceptive services.

The discussion will happen before the legislators vote on the proposals during a special session later in the day.

Indiana Republicans proposed a series of bills Wednesday that outlaw most abortion procedures in the state while increasing access to contraceptive care and funds for women and children. Debate over the bills is expected to begin Monday morning.
