Republicans often say the government shouldn't come between a doctor and their patients, but that philosophy clearly doesn't apply to pregnant women.
State lawmakers in Indiana have advanced a bill that would require doctors to provide junk science to women who seek abortions.

In recent years, Arizona, South Dakota and Arkansas have passed laws regarding abortion reversal. Planned Parenthood challenged the Arizona law in federal court and the legislature rescinded it, with Arizona's attorney general conceding the federal court case.
There is no scientifically proven "reversal process," but that's not necessarily the reason why Planned Parenthood defeated the state of Arizona or why the Indiana bill could also be challenged and defeated if it's signed into law.
Arizona's abortion reversal law was successfully challenged on the grounds that it violated the First Amendment rights of doctors and the Fourteenth Amendment rights of patients.
It's not just junk science; it's an unconstitutional mandate.
