UPDATE: Senate File 96 has been signed by the Governor. 

Senate File 96 or the “Homicide Amendment” is an attempt to create new crimes in Wyoming which attempt to establish fetal personhood.  

We oppose Senate File 96. This policy furthers Wyoming’s desire to crearte new crimes in the state. This policy would establish the crime of first and second degree murder for killing or attempting to kill a pregnant person. This bill could effectively establish fetal personhood.
