The protest will be held Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Statehouse. 

Speakers will include representatives from Planned Parenthood, current and former state lawmakers and doctors.

"The ramifications of this bill are not only devastating to women, but also to their families and unborn children. There is a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding surrounding HB1337 and women are scared. We want Governor Pence and the legislators who voted for the bill to realize how damaging their actions will be to women,"  Annette Gross, one of the organizers said in a press release.

Members of Indiana Right to Life will also be speaking in support of the bill Saturday.
