The authorities of Wyoming announced on Friday the ban on abortion pills to undo access to termination of pregnancy.

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon, a Republican, called on lawmakers to move forward to enshrine a total ban on abortion in the constitution of that state and subject it to the vote of the citizens.

The decision comes as many opponents of this clinical procedure want to ban the abortion pill nationwide, after the Supreme Court – the highest court of justice – last year overturned the right to interrupt a pregnancy at the federal level.

Also looming is a ruling from a federal court in Amarillo, Texas, where a judge is expected to rule soon on a possible nationwide ban on a widely used abortion pill.

This pill, the mifepristonewas approved by the US drug regulatory agency, the FDA, more than a decade ago and has been legally available on the market for many years.

Texas lawmakers are also considering a proposal that would not only ban abortion pills, but also require internet providers in the state to block access to websites where such pills are sold by mail order.

Ever since the U.S. Supreme Court last year struck down a landmark 1973 ruling making abortion a constitutional right, anti-abortion activists have been looking for ways to enshrine a nationwide ban on abortion.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive health research group, about 15 states already restrict access to mifepristone by requiring a doctor to provide it.
