The bill would criminalize doctors who fail to perform life-saving measures for infants meant to be aborted but that are accidentally “born alive”—a law that would rarely, if ever, be applied in Wyoming, since abortions after 12 weeks are illegal here and fetuses are not viable until at least 20 - 23 weeks. Two other anti-abortion bills have been defeated.

Lawmakers used budget amendments last week to force UW to re-negotiate its student group insurance plan to remove abortion coverage. This is despite the fact that student insurance consists of private plans paid for with private funds.

Medical professionals, including one committee member, condemned the proposal to criminalize doctors who fail to perform life-saving procedures on aborted fetuses that are “born alive.”

The same bill, which would imprison doctors who violate the waiting period for up to ten years, passed the same committee last year with the same vote.

The “heartbeat bill” would effectively ban abortion in Wyoming. Another would mandate a waiting period for the procedure. The third is a pointless barb in the culture wars.
