INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Lawmakers in Indiana have passed a bill banning the murder of unborn children based on a Down Syndrome diagnosis or any other disability, while stopping short of banning all abortion in the state.

H.B. 1337 passed the House of Representatives in a 60-40 vote on Wednesday, just a week after the Indiana Senate advanced the legislation 37-13.

“Indiana does not allow a fetus to be aborted solely because of the fetus’s race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, or diagnosis or potential diagnosis of the fetus having Down syndrome or any other disability,” the bill, introduced by Rep. Casey Cox, R-Fort Wayne, reads.
