Wyoming Abortion Law Post-Dobbs

On March 15, 2022, Wyoming enacted W.S. §35-6-102 (2022) to restrict abortion in the absence of federal abortion protection under the Roe decision. The law is designed such that subsection (b) overrides subsection (a), upon the overturn of Roe. Subsection (a) is a standing restriction on abortions after viability except to preserve the life and health of the mother. Upon certification by the governor, subsection (a) will be replaced with a ban on abortions at all stages, with exceptions for heath of the mother, sexual assault, and incest.
