Montana voters rejected an anti-abortion measure. GOP lawmakers passed a similar bill anyway.

The will of the electorate didn’t stop Republican lawmakers in Montana from passing a version of the anti-abortion proposal that voters rejected only months earlier. When Republican Gov. Greg Gianforte signed the bill in May, Montana became the only state to pass a law that directly contravened voters who said “no” to an anti-abortion ballot measure in 2022.
