Yesterday, March 2nd the Senate passed SB 174 "Abortion Prohibition Amendments” it passed 23 to 6. All the Republicans voted Yes and all the Democrats voted No.
This bill, Sponsored by State Senator Dan McCay, will prohibit a doctor from performing an abortion with limited exceptions. The bill states: "the intentional termination or attempted termination of human pregnancy after implantion of a fertilized ovum through a medical procedure carried out by a physician or through a substance used under the direction of a physician;" This legislation will go into effect when Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court and the authority is returned back to Utah and the other States to set their own Abortion laws.
When introducing the bill Senator McCay said "I have long felt that Abortion is wrong" he went on to say that is why he is sponsoring this bill. https://le.utah.gov/~2020/bills/static/sb0174.html
