Utah House Passes Historic Bill to Ban All Abortion Clinics – LifeNews.com
Salt Lake City, UT (Feb 21, 2023) – The Utah House of Representatives has passed a bill that would ban all abortion clinics in the state. The bill, which passed by a vote of 56-17, would make it illegal for any abortion clinic to operate in Utah.
The bill, which was sponsored by Republican Representative Karianne Lisonbee, would also require abortion clinics to be licensed by the state and would impose a number of restrictions on the clinics, including requiring them to provide information about the risks of abortion and alternatives to abortion.
The bill has been met with criticism from pro-choice advocates, who argue that the bill would effectively ban abortion in the state. They argue that the bill would make it impossible for women to access safe and legal abortion services in the state.
Proponents of the bill argue that it is necessary to protect the health and safety of women in the state. They argue that the bill would ensure that abortion clinics are held to the highest standards and that women are provided with accurate information about the risks of abortion.
The bill now moves to the Senate, where it is expected to pass. If it passes, it will then go to the governor for his signature. If it is signed into law, it would take effect immediately. – Wasatch Defense Lawyers does not represent any parties mentioned above, nor is it our intent to represent any of the parties.
