Wyoming becomes first U.S. state to ban abortion drugs



On Friday, Wyoming became the first U.S. state to ban abortion drugs, marking another victory in the conservative-led administration’s campaign to roll back access to abortion.

Republican Mark Gordon, Governor of Western Wyoming, has gone further and called on the state legislature to include a total abortion ban in the state’s constitution and put it to a public vote.

The decision comes after the Supreme Court (Supreme Court) annulled the right to terminate pregnancies at the federal level last year, with many opponents of this clinical procedure seeking to ban abortion drugs across the country.

Also pending is a federal court ruling in Amarillo, Texas (Southern). There, judges are expected to make an imminent ruling on an eventual nationwide ban on the widely used abortion drug.

This pill, mifepristone, was approved by the US drug regulatory agency, the FDA, more than a decade ago and has been legally on the market for many years.

Texas Judge Matthew Kaxmalik may order abortion pills to be withdrawn from the market nationwide.

Lawmakers in Texas are considering a proposal not only to ban abortion pills, but also require internet service providers in the state to block access to websites that sell abortion pills online. .

Since the U.S. Supreme Court handed down a landmark 1973 decision last year that established abortion as a constitutional right, anti-abortion activists have sought ways to ban abortion nationwide.

About 15 states have already restricted access to mifepristone by requiring physicians to provide it, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive health research group.
