The Center for American Progress has reported that researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder calculated the increase in maternal deaths in the United States if abortion were completely banned. Read about it here.
Vote pro-choice. Individuals elected to all levels of office—from precinct committee persons to President of the United States—have a say in matters relating to a person’s right to choose.
Contact your state legislators regarding proposed legislation. Anti-choice bills are filed in the Wyoming legislature almost every year. State legislators listen to their constituents and other Wyomingites, and it is important for them to hear from pro-choice individuals as legislative measures come up for votes. The Wyoming legislature meets for 40 days in odd-numbered years (starting in January) and for 20 days in even-numbered years (starting in February)

We do intense legislative work and lobbying before, during, and after the fast-paced sessions of the Wyoming Legislature. Our efforts have helped stop some of the worst restrictions on reproductive freedom from becoming law–but we have seen almost everything that has made headlines in other states. We review all bills, do research and prepare fact sheets, send action alerts, organize legislative committee testimony, and work one on one with legislators of all parties and points of view.
We work to identify pro-choice voters and get them to the polls on election day. We work to identify and support pro-choice candidates.
We provide educational information to the public, the media, legislators, and candidates. We make literature on many topics available when we have tables and booths at community events. We work with colleagues at partner organizations to disseminate information about abortion access, the dangers of crisis pregnancy centers, and the availability of emergency contraception. Through paid and free media, we address abortion stigma and the need for safe, legal abortion care for anyone who wants or needs it.
