IUSM AMWA students at Rally for Women’s Rights
The IUSM AMWA student group recently participated in a Rally for Women’s Rights at the Indiana Statehouse. They joined over 1500 people protesting a recent law the governor signed into law that was felt to be intrusive into the rights of women to decide the course of action needed for their own bodies. Indiana governor Mike Pence signed into law, HEA 1337 which restriction abortions if the reason for the abortion is due to genetic problems, medical conditions, gender or race. The law is soon to be contested by the courts but if approved will go into effect in July, 2016.
