INDIANAPOLIS – On Sunday, Senate Enrolled Act (SEA) 174, co-authored by State Senator J.D. Ford (D-Indianapolis), was signed into law. Sen. Ford had the following remarks on the fertility fraud law:

“Every person has a right to safety in the exam room, and those who abuse the trust of their patients should be penalized accordingly. Many people, including my constituents Matt and Liz White, have worked hard to get this language into state code so we can start preventing similar exam room assaults from happening to future generations. I want to congratulate them and thank them for their years of hard work and persistence.

“This is about protecting Hoosiers and keeping their safety and privacy as top priorities.”
