Indiana Employers Criticize State’s New Abortion Law
“On Friday, the governor of Indiana signed into law a near-total abortion ban, making the state the first to approve sweeping new restrictions since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June,” the New York Times reports.
“On Saturday morning, one of Indiana’s biggest employers, the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly, issued a strong objection to the new restrictions. ‘Given this new law,’ it said in a statement, ‘we will be forced to plan for more employment growth outside our home state.’”
“Shortly after, Jon Mills, a spokesman for Cummins, an engine company that employs about 10,000 people in the state, said: ‘The right to make decisions regarding reproductive health ensures that women have the same opportunity as others to participate fully in our work force and that our work force is diverse. There are provisions in the bill that conflict with this, impact our people and impede our ability to attract and retain top talent.’”
