The state of Wyoming on Friday (17) became the first state in the US to ban the use of the abortion pill, a new victory in a campaign by conservative governments to reform access to termination of pregnancy.
Republican Gov. Mark Gordon has urged lawmakers to add a blanket ban on abortion to the Wyoming constitution. and submit to a public vote.
In federal court in Amarillo, Texas (South), a judge will soon rule on a national ban on mifepristone, which was approved by the FDA more than a decade ago.
Texas Judge Matthew Kasmaric may order mifepristone, which has been sold legally for years, to be withdrawn from the market nationwide.
Texas lawmakers are also considering a plan that would block state Internet service providers from accessing sites where the pills are sold and distributed by mail order.
