Hi, Wyoming,

I'm writing this to you and 12 other states where abortion is illegal but allows for ballot initiatives.

I think that 2022 proved abortion right are very popular and very few people want the procedure banned. It kicked ass in Kansas, Kentucky and Michigan and vastly outperformed Pew polls which said that Kansas is about 50-50 on the issue while Kentucky considerably more anti-choice.

You are one of the states that allows ballot initiative. Several questions:

  1. How do you think it would fare?

  2. Do you think it's possible that the referendum will happen in spite of the Republicans trying to prevent that?

  3. If it passes, do you think that something can be done to make it actually kick in, in spite of Republicans trying to prevent that?

I know that Republicans have bad habit of ignoring the voice of the people who voted for or against certain referendum, so I definitely wish you lots of luck.

Also, I'm worried that Dobbs decision gave anti-choicers a victory hangover and they got complacent at the polls and that this may not be the case in 2 years and they will do much better ground game to out-vote pro-choice crowd. This is not to mention that huge part is campaign contributions.

In cases of Kentucky and Kansas, as well as Michigan, pro-choice side vastly out-funded the anti-choice side, which is big advantage. This was also the case in Tennessee in 2014 and Alabama in 2018, when the anti-choicers got their way, which really scares the shit out of me. Don't you worry that whoever runs for president will affect that? I really hope that the nominees are not Biden and deSantis. Biden needs to let someone much younger to take after him and deSantis might be the one Republican to win. Trump is in so much shit, that he would bless the Democrats with his campaign and help women to win their rights back.

r/wyoming Rules

1.
No Spam, No Porn, Don't be a jerk
2.
Wyoming related stuff only.
3.
No Blog-Spam

People who frequently contribute to the sub in comments and are part of the community will get some leniency around this as long as it's not abused. This includes but is not limited to a blog where the author copies or paraphrases from a source to increase their own traffic. This is up to mod discretion.

4.
No directing to a site you have pecuniary interest

This subreddit doesn't exist as a vehicle for you to drive traffic to a site in which you have a pecuniary interest. Those posts will be removed. This may relate to blog-spam. If you own a site that you make money on people visiting, do not use this sub to your advantage. This likely includes advertising by linking to a company's website. Linking to these may be fine, but there must be a valid reason.

5.
No Craigslist style postings.
6.
No politicking

You may link to news articles discussing your like/dislike for a candidate but promoting a candidate and campaigning is not allowed. Articles on policy and opinions are likely fine so long as not coming from the candidate themselves. We want to encourage political discussion. Again this is up to mod discretion.

7.
No Road Closed Posts

Please do not post 'When will X Road open?'....We do not know. Welcome to Wyoming, the road will close if the weather sucks. The road will open when the weather doesnt suck. Find more info here: https://wyoroad.info/

8.
Generally no links to Facebook.

Generally we do not want links to Facebook. However there are times that it could be perfectly acceptable. For example if a post is made about the video gaming scene in Wyoming, someone could link to the Wyoming Smash Facebook page and that would be perfectly acceptable.

9.
No Hard Paywalls

This includes any site which requires a subscription or other form of payment to view the content being linked. In addition, no links that require an app download to view. Soft paywalls including those which limit the number of visits to a site or those requiring other action such as surveys are still allowed at the moment.

10.
Spreading false info/downplaying the pandemic

The spreading of false information or downplaying the seriousness of the pandemic will not be tolerated. This is a serious issue that is literally killing people and we will not become a platform that puts people in harms way.

11.
Please review and utilize the stickied threads.

Posts and questions regarding moving to or visiting Wyoming need to be directed to the appropriate stickied thread. Additionally, most questions regarding weather and road conditions can be answered by reviewing the stickied "Weather and Road Closures" informational post.
