Wyoming Gov. Signs Bill Protecting Abortion Survivors

After a Wyoming bill was successfully passed by both houses, Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon signed the Born Alive Infant Means of Care Act on Tuesday. This legislation protects the babies who survive attempted abortions by requiring physicians to give them the same degree of care they would give any other newborn.

The law reads:

“The commonly accepted means of care that would be rendered to any other infant born alive shall be employed in the treatment of any viable infant aborted alive. Any physician performing an abortion shall take medically appropriate and reasonable steps to preserve the life and health of an infant born alive.” 

The bill passed with overwhelming margins in the House [48-11] and Senate [26-4]. Gov. Gordon vetoed a slightly different version of the bill last year, but he chose to sign this year's iteration of the bill into law.

The law is scheduled to take effect on July 1.
