Wyoming governor vetoes abortion, Medicaid-funds bills
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon has vetoed a bill that would’ve required doctors to provide lifesaving care to infants born after an attempted abortion.
Gordon said in a statement Friday the bill didn’t improve upon existing laws that protect newborns in such circumstances. Gordon says the bill instead would harm people it never intended to harm — parents who wanted a child but were told their pregnancy wasn’t viable.
Gordon also vetoed a bill that would’ve set up a system allocating Medicaid funds to special education.
Gordon was skeptical about allowing school districts to decide if they wanted to participate.
