SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah State Legislature has passed a bill banning abortions after 18 weeks.
The Utah Senate voted 23-6, along party lines, for the bill.
Supporters said the bill supports a woman’s right to choose – up to 18 weeks. But opponents said it tramples on a woman’s right and will not withstand a court challenge.
The bill now goes to Governor Herbert’s office for his signature or veto.
