Utah Advances Legislation to Ban Clinics That Offer Only Abortion

The Utah House of Representatives passed some of the strongest pro-life legislation advanced since the reversal of Roe v. Wade. If passed by the state's Senate and signed into law, the measures effectively would shut down abortion clinics that only offer abortion and would also help victims of rape and incest. The first bill, sponsored by Rep. Karianne Lisonbee, a Republican, prohibits abortions outside of hospitals and bans clinics that only offer abortion. Further, the bill prohibits the licensing of abortion clinics after May 2, 2023, and makes it a criminal offense for out-of-state actors to prescribe abortion drugs to Utahns. <B><a href="https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/253693/utah-advances-legislation-to-ban-clinics-that-offer-only-abortion">Read more...</A></B></p>
