“With Roe on the rocks and the Biden’s FDA destroying women’s safety provisions around the distribution of Chemical Abortion, abortion drug vendors are working aggressively to establish a deadly new back alley in Chemical Abortion distribution,” said Students for Life Action and Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “This is Death By Mail – a threat to both child and mother. The Pro-Life Generation will not abide the abortion movement’s new frontier. While the abortion industry drags women backwards, we are moving FORWARD, connecting women and families with the resources and help they need to be safe from the predation of Corporate Abortion.”

CHEYENNE, W.Y., and WASHINGTON, D.C. (2-23-22) –As we reported last week, Students for Life Action is working in Wyoming to protect women and children from Chemical Abortion. In Wyoming, Senator Tim Salazar’s SF0083, “prohibiting chemical abortions” was heard today and passed unanimously out of the state’s Labor and Health Committee. SFLAction was present to testify in favor of the protection and continue mobilizing in support of Sen. Salazar’s strong legislation. The bill moves to the full state Senate tomorrow.

Brooke Faulkner, Rocky Mountain Regional Coordinator, delivered the following testimony in support of the measure: 

Good morning, 

My name is Brooke Falkner. I am the Rocky Mountain Regional Coordinator with Students for Life Action.Students for Life Action (SFLAction), a 501c4, along with its 501c3 sister organization, Students for Life of America (SFLA), make up the nation’s largest pro-life youth organization and a political and policy operation engaging people of all ages. Together our organizations work to end abortion — the human rights issue of our day.  SFLA has more than 1,250 groups on middle, high school, college, university, medical, and law school campuses in all 50 states.

I stand before you today representing our WY student groups and pro-life citizens whom I serve throughout the state of Wyoming to urge you to support SF 83, which would protect the lives of your constituents, born and preborn, by Banning deadly Chemical Abortion pills.

Chemical Abortion pills are dangerous to women, and lethal to babies. They end the life of a preborn child, and are even more dangerous to women than surgical abortion, causing 4x more complications.1 The pills can cause infertility if used improperly, and can even be slipped into the drinks of pregnant women. Widespread distribution of the pills will likely result in increased abuse and sex-trafficking of women. 

Corporate abortion groups have set up authorization in all 50 states2 that would make it possible to bring deadly chemical abortion pills to underage girls across the nation on-line with just a few clicks, confidentially, with no safeguards or follow-up care in their new “Abortion by Amazon” world. 

While a few states have some in-person requirements in place3, the lack of strong laws across the country empower Corporate Abortion interests to cheaply dispense the pills everywhere, skirting state laws which focus enforcement on licensing and regulatory requirements of in-state providers. 

The real solution is heavy fines to target out-of-state pill pushers, as well as those dispensing physicians who “zoom” briefly with a woman, then ship her death by mail. 

Again, simply regulating this exploitative system isn’t enough – these pills instead should be banned, as the legislation before you does.

We will continue to build support around this legislation, and keep our constituents and yours posted regarding what the legislature does at each step of the process.

Again, I ask you to support Sen. Salazar’s Chemical Abortion ban, SF 83, as women deserve better than the violence of abortion. Wyoming can lead the way by banning chemical abortion and take a big step toward making Wyoming abortion free. Thank you.
