Judges in North Dakota and Wyoming Block Abortion “Trigger” Bans

HeadlineJul 28, 2022

Judges in North Dakota and Wyoming on Wednesday temporarily blocked the enforcement of “trigger” bans on abortion, enabling reproductive health providers in those states to resume services after the Supreme Court’s decision in June striking down Roe v. Wade. Meanwhile, the West Virginia House of Delegates has approved a bill to ban nearly all abortions. The bill passed with the support of three-quarters of lawmakers; it now moves to West Virginia’s state Senate for consideration.
