House Bill 148 would require clinics that provide surgical abortions in the state to be licensed as ambulatory surgical centers and that doctors performing abortions there have admitting privileges at a hospital not more than 10 miles away.

The ACLU of Wyoming opposes House Bill 148. House Bill 148 takes a sneakier path to limiting abortion access than the two abortion bans that passed last year and the “trigger ban” that passed the year before and are currently tied up in court.

By imposing regulations that sound technical and bureaucratic to a casual observer, they avoid widespread public scrutiny. But the regulations House Bill 148 would impose on abortion providers are costly and impossible to comply with. We urge lawmakers to reject this bill.
