Wyoming, the land that Blam-Blam and his daughter used to represent, where men are men and sheep wear garters, has taken the bold step to be the first state in the country to explicitly ban abortion pills:
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming has pushed to the front of state efforts to prohibit the most common type of abortion by instituting the nation’s first explicit ban on pills that terminate pregnancies.
Medication abortions, which usually involve taking two prescription medications days apart at home or in a clinic, became the preferred method for ending pregnancy in the U.S. even before the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade – and now account for more than half of all abortions according to the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that supports abortion rights.
More than a dozen states now effectively ban abortion pills by prohibiting all forms of abortion, moves made after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned its landmark Roe v. Wade ruling last year.
Fifteen states restrict access to the pills. Of those, six — Arizona, Indiana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota and South Carolina — require a doctor to administer them in person. Arizona also bans mailing abortion pills.
Y’all Qaeda really wants you to birth that baby even if it kills you. Of course, there’s all kinds of problems here (interstate commerce, banning FDA-approved medicine, US Postal Service) that probably will tie this up in legal challenges for years, but that is not a lot of comfort for people being forced to carry to term an unviable fetus or a deadly and septic pregnancy.
I wonder how many (if any) of these male White Christian Nationalists ever had any biology classes (let alone Sex Ed). A lot of women are going to die, probably including their own family members. Not all of ‘em are wealthy enough to go to Atlanta for “a weekend shopping trip.”
Considering the number of them that believe you can just suction out the embryo from an ectopic pregnancy and just ‘put it in the right place’ or any of the 9000 different insane thing they believe about human female anatomy, I’m gonna say “Hell no!”

Wyoming is the least populous state, despite being 10th largest by area. There are reasons for that. Just a little factoid.
It would be an easy place for some GOP gangsters to take control.
Heck, they could even call themselves Cowboys and Ranchers !
Nice little park you got there, what do you call it, Yellowstone?
It would be a shame if something happened to it.
If Yellowstone blows (again) it’ll make Mt St Helens look like a popgun, and Krakatoa like a teensy firecracker in comparison.
On the upside, the gargantuan volume of sulfates injected into the atmosphere would significantly cool the planet, might even help us avoid the worst of global warming by giving us some more time to deal with it.
