Penalty Measure Seen as Anti-Abortion by Some

Cheyenne, WY – The Senate is debating a bill that would add an additional penalty if an unborn child is killed when the mother is murdered. It is viewed as a controversial measure by some who think it gives protections to fetuses that are not part of Wyoming law. Some see it as an anti-abortion measure. But Senator Charles Scott says that view is only being offered by extremists. Senator Rae Lynn Job disagrees, saying that there is no evidence that the bill offers any additional protections for women. The bill will be debated two more times.
