Utah bans abortion clinics in wave of post-Roe restrictions


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Clinics in Utah could be banned from performing abortions under a law signed by the state’s Republican governor, setting off a rush of confusion among clinics, hospitals and prospective patients in the deeply conservative state.


Administrators from hospitals and clinics have not publicly detailed plans to adapt to the new rules, adding a layer of uncertainty on top of fear that, if clinics close, patients may not be able to access care at hospitals due to staffing and cost concerns.


The law signed by Gov. Spencer Cox on Wednesday will take effect May 3, at which time clinics will not be able to get new licenses. It institutes a full ban Jan. 1, 2024. Both the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah and the Utah Hospital Association declined to detail how the increasingly fraught legal landscape for providers in Utah will affect abortion access.
