Last week, Abortion-Free Utah launched a campaign to end elective abortion in the state, which includes an upcoming piece of legislation banning the procedure by Riverton Republican Sen. Dan McCay, who said he does not yet know whether his bill will allow exceptions in instances of rape, incest, or when the life of the mother is at risk.

The bill, which would conflict with long-standing court precedents, follows similar legislation in other states and recent anti-abortion resolutions in Utah cities and counties, as well as twin laws approved by the Utah Legislature earlier this year that have been put on hold pending the outcome of litigation.

On this week’s “Trib Talk," Abortion-Free Utah Chairwoman Merrilee Boyack and Tribune government reporter Bethany Rodgers join reporter Benjamin Wood to discuss the different strategies being used by abortion opponents in the state.
