Indiana's Legislature on Friday became the first in the nation to pass new legislation restricting access to abortions. Cummins, which employs about 10,000 people in Indiana, spoke out over the weekend against the new law as well. Lilly said in a statement on Saturday that it recognizes abortion as a "divisive and deeply personal issue with no clear consensus among the citizens of Indiana"

"We are concerned that this law will hinder Indiana's... ability to attract diverse scientific, engineering and business talent," Eli Lilly says. Indiana's Legislature on Friday became the first in the nation to pass new legislation restricting access to abortions since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

Lilly, an engine manufacturing company in Indiana, spoke out against the new law. "The right to make decisions regarding reproductive health ensures that women have the same opportunity as others," the company said. The state was among the earliest to debate tighter abortion laws after the Supreme Court ruling in June.

Indiana's abortion ban is expected to go into effect on Sept. 15. It comes with some exceptions, including for cases of rape or incest, and for protecting the mother's life. President Joe Biden's administration has also condemned Indiana's decision. "It's another radical step by Republican legislators to take away women's reproductive rights and freedom," White House says.
