Default USA: Wyoming becomes first state to ban abortion pills

A Wyoming law signed Friday prohibits chemical forms of abortion from the
point pregnancy can be confirmed through conventional medical testing.

"I have acted without bias and after extensive prayer, to allow these bills to
become law," Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon (R) wrote in a letter to
Secretary of State Chuck Gray, as reported by the Wyoming Tribune Eagle.

Gordon, who embraces a pro-life policy agenda, said he signed the chemical
abortion ban because it "strengthens the protections for the unborn," the outlet also said.

The law, which becomes effective July 1, excludes contraceptives used prior
to conception, treatment of natural miscarriage, and treatment to protect a
woman's physical health from imminent peril. Pregnancies that are the result
of incest or sexual assault are also excluded from the new law.

The exceptions to the law regarding the preservation of a woman's health
refer solely to her physical condition. Neither emotional nor psychological
conditions qualify for the exception. Claims or diagnoses indicating the
pregnant woman will commit suicide or engage in self-harm, for example,
would not qualify.
Women who receive chemical abortions would not be subject to criminal prosecution under
the new law. Physicians or others who are found to have violated the new law will be
guilty of a misdemeanor. Violations are punishable by imprisonment for up to six months,
a fine of up to $9,000, or both.

About 53% of all abortions in the United States are performed via medication, according
to Guttmacher Institute's preliminary data. Medication abortions began accounting for the
majority of abortions in the United States in 2020. Prior to 2020, surgical forms of
abortion constituted the majority, the pro-choice research and advocacy organization

Medication abortions typically comprise a two-drug combination. Together, mifepristone
and misoprostol are known as the "abortion pill."

Walgreens, the second-largest pharmacy chain in the United States, faced threats of
boycotts over its confirmation it would not dispense abortion pills, even in some states
where abortion is legal, as TheBlaze reported earlier this month.

Wyoming's new law comes on the heels of its trigger ban on nearly all abortions being
blocked in court last year, National Review reported.

A preliminary ruling by a Texas judge expected soon could order U.S. Food and Drug
Administration to withdraw approval of mifepristone, the New York Times reported Friday.

In addition to the abortion pill ban, Wyoming's Gov. Mark Gordon also allowed a separate
measure to become law without his signature. That law, the "Life is a Human Right Act,"
which becomes effective Sunday, bans abortions under "almost all circumstances."

Stupidity and cruelty for the sake of it. This is the kind of thing that truly posts a danger to women's rights and it's something that could all too easily spread here as well, given how much the tories have decided to act like republicans thus far.

At least you're learning.

But seriously I agree with you that on this particular topic the choice should be given to the woman as she is the one carrying the child.
