Wyoming has become the first state to ban abortion pills following a bill signed by Governor Mark Gordon on Friday that made prescribing and selling them illegal.
The new law states that it will be “unlawful to prescribe, dispense, distribute, sell or use any drug for the purpose of procuring or performing an abortion.” This is the first state law of this nature to be implemented by Wyoming, according to a report from the Washington Post.
Governor Gordon stated his support for the bill as it strengthens “protections for the unborn.”
Individuals who break the law, which goes into effect beginning in July 2023, could face a prison sentence of up to six years along with a fine of up to $9000.
