A Wyoming bill to ban abortions that recognizes unborn babies’ right to life statrting from conception has become law.
Lawmakers in both the House and Senate approved the Human Right Act (House Bill 152)earleir this month and Governor Mark Gordon allowed the measure to become law.
Sponsored by state Rep. Rachel Rodriguez-Williams, R-Cody, the bill would protect unborn babies by prohibiting all elective abortions in Wyoming and creating penalties for abortionists who violate the law.
“[A]ll members of the human race are created equal and are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, the foremost of which is the right to life,” the bill states.
Wyoming already has a law that bans abortions, but a judge blocked it last year. Rodriguez-Williams’s bill would go further than the current ban by protecting all unborn babies, including those conceived in rape and incest. Her bill also clearly states that the ban does not include abortions when the mother’s life is at risk, or miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy care.
At the same time, Wyoming has become the first state to specifically ban abortion pills after Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon signed a bill late Friday to prohibit them.
SBA Pro-Life America’s Western Regional Director Adam Schwend told LifeNews his group is elated at both measures becoming law.
