Description

Senate File 131 would outlaw abortion in Wyoming after an embryo or fetus has a “detectable fetal heartbeat.”

ACLU position

The ACLU of Wyoming opposes this bill. Senate File 131 is most alarming of a trio of abortion bills that would ban abortions in Wyoming at six weeks. Since most pregnancies aren’t detected until after six weeks, this bill would ban almost every abortion in Wyoming.
