Indiana GOP Candidates Run Away from Senate Bill 1, GOP’s Extreme Positions on Abortion 


HD 32 Candidate Fred Glynn and HD 89 Candidate and Indianapolis Councillor Michael-Paul Hart both run away from voters, won’t address the Indiana GOP making abortion against the law 

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Democratic Party, the organization that advocates for the future of Indiana and its families, today called out Indiana GOP House candidates Fred Glynn and Michael-Paul Hart for dodging voters on one of the most important kitchen-table issues facing Hoosiers this election year: abortion. For Glynn, he’s shying away from his “life begins at conception” stance he used during the primary elections. And in Hart’s case, the Indianapolis City Councillor voted to abstain from a resolution in support of abortion access and refered to abortion as a “state issue” – despite challenging Mitch Gore for Indiana House District 89.

Glynn and Hart are joining a national trend of Republicans distancing themselves from their party’s extreme stance on abortion following the historic vote in Kansas where a large majority of voters rejected the GOP’s agenda to make abortion against the law. It’s time Indiana GOP candidates for office – from Fred Glynn and Michael-Paul Hart to Todd Young and Jennifer-Ruth Green – disclose their position on abortion immediately. 

Why did Fred Glynn wipe his “life begins at conception” stance from his campaign website? 

If abortion is a “state issue”, when will Michael-Paul Hart publicly disclose his position on abortion as a candidate for Indiana House District 89?

Why do Todd Young and Jennifer-Ruth Green support outlawing all forms of abortions – with no exceptions? 

Here’s a look at how the Indiana GOP’s statehouse candidates are tweaking their extremist views on abortion:
