In the United States, Wyoming becomes the first state to ban the abortion pill

Published on :

Wyoming on Friday became the first US state to ban the abortion pill. A further setback in access to abortion in the United States made possible by the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Roe vs. Wade judgment which upheld this right at the federal level. Since then, about fifteen conservative states have decided to ban all pregnancy terminations on their soil.

Wyoming has just given a new turn of the screw. This state became, on Friday March 17, the first in the United States to ban the abortion pill, which constitutes a new victory for the conservatives who intend to reduce access to abortion in the United States.

The governor of Wyoming (west), Mark Gordon, called on lawmakers to go further and include a total ban on abortion in the constitution of this state and submit it to the vote of voters.

The decision comes at a time when many abortion opponents are seeking to ban the abortion pill nationwide, after the Supreme Court’s decision last year to bury the right to abortion at the federal. Since then, fifteen states have decided to ban all pregnancy terminations on their soil.

A ruling on this is also expected soon in court in Amarillo, Texas, where an ultra-conservative federal judge is due to rule on a possible federal ban on mifepristone (RU 486). This pill, the most widely used for medical termination of pregnancy, was authorized in 2000 by the American Medicines Agency (FDA). Texas federal judge Matthew Kacsmaryk could order it to be taken off the market nationwide.

Restricted access to mifepristone in several states

Texas lawmakers are also considering a proposal that would not only ban abortion pills, but also require state internet providers to block access to sites where these pills are sold by mail order.

The governor of Wyoming has said he has no intention of backing down in his fight against abortion.

“I believe that all life is sacred and that every individual, including unborn children, should be treated with dignity and compassion,” Mark Gordon said on Friday evening.

Since the Supreme Court of the United States in June last year granted freedom to legislate to each state, about fifteen of them have limited access to mifepristone by requiring that a doctor provide it, according to the Guttmacher Institute research center which defends the right of women to have an abortion.

If the Texas federal judge rules for a nationwide ban on the abortion pill, abortion rights groups say it will have as big an impact as last year’s Supreme Court ruling.
