Letter: Abortion ban would be regressive

My jaw dropped when I read Curt Smith’s column from the June 10 Forefront section of IBJ [Curt Smith: Overturning Roe is right choice for country]. To quote: “There will be vigorous debate as to whether state law should allow exceptions, such as the life of the mother, rape and incest.”

Excuse me? The life of a mother is up for debate? A rape victim’s health is up for debate? A child victim of incest and their needs are up for debate?

How insulting, disgusting and unconscionable. Indiana is about to exact a regressive law and our state will pay heavily for it. Especially our women. Does Indiana really want to lose residents and businesses because legislators think a woman should not have autonomy over her own body?
