STUDENTS FOR LIFE ACTION SUPPORTS WYOMING’S PROPOSED CHEMICAL ABORTION BAN, SF0133  

STUDENTS FOR LIFE ACTION SUPPORTS WYOMING’S PROPOSED CHEMICAL ABORTION BAN, SF0133  

“Pregnancy is not a disease cured by abortion, which is why selling Chemical Abortion Pills that end life should have no place in our nation’s healthcare,” said SFLAction’s Kristan Hawkins, noting that the Wyoming bill is one of SFLAction’s’ key bills developed over the last year in response to the dramatic loss of life. 

CHEYENNE, WY & WASHINGTON D.C. (03-10-2021) – Students for Life Action President Kristan Hawkins said that a new bill introduced by Sen. Tim Salazar would stop the dangerous and deadly distribution of Chemical Abortion Pills in the state, an effort that SFLAction has been promoting as our signature contribution to state legislation across the country in this session. The measure would make it a felony to use Chemical Abortion Pills to deliberately end pre-born life. Approximately 40% of the children who die in abortion in the U.S. are killed by Chemical Abortion Pills, and it is four times more dangerous for the woman than surgical abortion.

“Pregnancy is not a disease cured by abortion,” said Hawkins, “which is why selling pills that end life should have no place in our nation’s healthcare. The purpose of medicine is to heal — not kill. The dangerous expansion of the Chemical Abortion Pill is a public health crisis in the making, threatening women with infertility, severe hemorrhage, missed ectopic pregnancy (which can be fatal), and a slew of other physical and psychological risks. For the child, chemical abortion is a barbaric death sentence carried out by chemically induced starvation. The Chemical Abortion Pill has claimed the lives of countless children and has injured (in some cases killed) thousands of women; it should be banned.

“The on-line, even anonymous, sale of Chemical Abortion Pills on-line empowers abusers, sexual predators and criminals who can slip the drugs to women without their knowledge or consent or even by force,” said Hawkins.

New polling commissioned by Students for Life in January 2021 found that Millennials and Gen Z support requiring lifesaving, physical exams before a Chemical Abortion to protect women’s lives and health. Preventing abusive people and partners from anonymously getting Chemical Abortion Pills that they slip to pregnant mothers without their consent got the greatest agreement from those demographics. By a margin of 55% to 23%, Millennials and Gen Z supported in-person purchase to stop abuse. The Chemical Abortion Pill is deadly and dangerous, and Students for Life found that more than half (52%) of 18- to 34-year-old voters would vote for Congressional candidates who supported regulating the killing drug.
