Six plaintiffs are suing to try to keep Wyoming’s trigger abortion law from being enforced. Wyoming Public Media names the plaintiffs as Danielle Johnson, a nurse and certified sexual assault examiner in Teton County, Wyoming; Dr. Giovannina Anthony, an abortion provider in Teton County, Wyoming; Dr. Rene Hinkle, an OB-GYN specialist in Laramie County, Wyoming affiliated with Cheyenne, Women’s Clinic; Wellspring Health Access (named in the complaint as Circle of Hope), an organization working to open a new reproductive health care clinic that will provide abortion care in Casper; Kathleen Dow, a student at the University of Wyoming College of Law and a practicing Conservative Jew.
The suit said the trigger law goes against Wyoming’s constitution that they say leaves health care decisions up to the individual. It also says it would do irreparable harm to abortion providers who wouldn’t be able to provide essential care and that it forces those seeking abortions to get care out of state. The suit was filed in Teton County Court seeking a temporary injunction against the law.
