The former director of Indiana Right to Life says he plans to resign from the state Senate.

Jeff Drozda is a Republican from Westfield. He has represented a district that includes portions of Hamilton and Howard counties, north of Indianapolis, since 2002.

Drozda says his employer, United Healthcare, is transferring his position to South Carolina. He plans to announce his decision on the floor of the Senate Thursday afternoon. He says he'll step down in July or August.

He's considered one of the senate's most conservative members and has sponsored legislation to restrict abortions. Drozda sponsored a bill this year that would have allowed pharmacists to deny customers prescriptions they believe cause abortions.
