Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead signs two pro-life bills into law

Published on

Pro-abortionists are lamenting not only that Wyoming now has two new pro-life laws, but that it broke the streak of 28 years without passage of life-affirming measures.

According to the Associated Press, Gov. Matt Mead signed the bills Thursday at a ceremony attended by pro-lifers. “They included several students wearing red ‘I am the pro-life generation’ t-shirts,” Mead Gruver reported.

House Bill 182 requires that the abortionist offer a pregnant woman the opportunity to view an ultrasound of her child and hear her baby’s heartbeat. Wyoming becomes the seventh state to offer this option.

The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute explains why opponents so hate ultrasounds: “the requirements appear to be a veiled attempt to personify the fetus and dissuade a woman from obtaining an abortion.”

Specifically, HB 182 requires abortionists to “orally and in person inform the pregnant woman that she has a right to view an active ultrasound of the unborn child and hear the heartbeat of the unborn child if the heartbeat is audible.”

“It’s a blow to the women of our state. It’s very discouraging,” Sharon Breitweiser, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Wyoming, told Rewirenews.

In addition, Gov. Mead signed HB 116. The bill prohibits the sale, transfer, or distribution of “any tissue or cells from an aborted child” for the purpose of experimentation. Both laws take effect July 1.

As NRL News Today reported previously, opponents defeated an assisted suicide bill [HB 121].

“Three facilities in Wyoming provide abortions,” Gruver reported. “Wyoming’s previously enacted abortion law, passed in 1989, requires any minor seeking an abortion to have parental permission.”
