It’s now more difficult in Indiana to get an abortion, and all miscarried fetuses must be buried or cremated.

Emily, of Indianapolis, who telephoned the governor’s office but only wanted her first name used in this story, told BuzzFeed News she called to query the specifics of the law.

“I asked them, as an ovulating and sexually active woman, was I compelled to examine my menses every month to ensure I hadn’t miscarried (as we can expel a fertilized egg at any point) or is this something I needed to involve my doctor in,” she said. “Or even better was there a list of state-approved doctors to do this for me so that I was ensuring complete compliance.”

“I do plan on calling again every day that I think of a question the bill raises or I have a reproductive concern,” she said, “to make sure I’m getting all of the information regarding my state’s reproductive bans/laws.”
