CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead signed into law Wyoming’s first restrictions on abortion in nearly 30 years Thursday after one of the biggest Republican majorities in the Legislature in state history approved the measures by wide margins.
Doctors will need to tell women seeking abortions in Wyoming they’re entitled to see an ultrasound of the fetus before going forward with the procedure. Another law prohibits using tissues from aborted fetuses for experimentation.
Mead did not comment before signing the bills but received thanks from some of the several dozen abortion opponents who took part in the signing ceremony. They included several students wearing red “I am the pro-life generation” t-shirts.
