Will Holcomb sign abortion legislation?
Indianapolis Star

It proposes the possibility of notifying a minor's parents that she's seeking to obtain an abortion without their consent.  Proponents call the bill an expanded protection of parental rights, but opponents see as an additional hurdle to a woman's right to choose.The version of Senate Bill 404 that Holcomb will consider is less restrictive than the original proposal, providing an option to waive parental notification rather than requiring it in all cases.The legislation "is not on his agenda," Holcomb's spokeswoman said, offering no other comment except to say he will "consider it carefully" before deciding whether to sign it, veto it or let it go into law without his signature.Challenges to other abortion laws:Lawmakers had pitched a gamut of abortion restrictions this year, including a total ban on all abortions, a mandate for a woman to view and listen to an ultrasound before an abortion and a requirement for abortion providers to inform women of a controversial reversal procedure before prescribing an abortion pill.
