“We’re thrilled to see the Governor sign into law our legislation that has been a two-year long effort in Wyoming. Combatting Chemical Abortion Pills also means combatting injury, abuse, death, and despair for women and the preborn. We could not be happier to see our legislation become the law in Wyoming and set an example for the rest of the nation. Our team engaged in more than 1,400 points of voter outreach and worked directly with Wyoming legislators to see this bill through. We’re grateful for the efforts of our pro-life champions in Wyoming and look to pass similar bills in more states,” said Kristan Hawkins, SFLAction President.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (03-17-2023) – Students for Life Action’s (SFLAction) Wyoming bill to end the distribution of Chemical Abortion Pills was signed into law today, making it one of the first major pro-life laws of 2023 and the first of its kind to prevent Chemical Abortions in a state.
State Senator Tim Salazar’s SF 109, “Prohibiting Chemical Abortions,” legislation will now take effect in Wyoming. This law is the first that explicitly and fully protects preborn babies and their mothers from the disastrous effects of Chemical Abortion Pills.
“Through canvassing, educational outreach, phone calls, testimonials, and lobbying, SFLAction has left its mark in Wyoming,” added Hawkins. “Our work stems back to 2022 where we engaged in more than 20 state races to ensure pro-life champions held positions of leadership and laws like these could be passed.”
Because of this legislation, physicians prescribing deadly Chemical Abortion Pills now face a heavy $9,000 fine or up to six months of jail time for violating the law. This law takes needed action against the drugs associated with four times more complications than surgical abortion yet make up more than half of abortions.
“By passing this legislation, Wyoming made a clear statement that we wish to protect the unborn and women from these dangerous drugs that are used in the taking of an unborn child’s life through abortion,” Senator Salazar previously told SFLAction.
SFLAction is working on advancing other pieces of legislation to combat Chemical Abortion Pills throughout the nation while raising awareness about the impact these drugs have on the environment, our water supply, and most importantly people – both born and preborn.
