A leading Indiana anti-abortion group says it isn't pushing for the addition of tougher measures to a bill that would tighten the state's laws on distribution of the abortion pill.

The bill approved by the Indiana House this week would also require clinics that provide only drug-induced abortions to meet the same standards as clinics that perform surgical abortions.

Indiana Right to Life President Mike Fichter says he's encouraging the state Senate to quickly endorse the bill and send it on to Republican Gov. Mike Pence. Fichter says he's satisfied with the Indiana bill even though it doesn't go as far as North Dakota measuring banning abortions as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

Pence says he's pleased with the Indiana bill and looks forward to signing it.
