SCOTUS Abortion Ruling May Impact Idaho

A Supreme Court ruling Monday that struck down Texas laws limiting access to abortions is raising new questions about efforts to regulate the procedure in Idaho. Like Texas, Idaho is a red state where the governor and a solid majority in the Legislature are against abortion, and bills seeking to restrict the practice further have come up during most recent sessions. This year saw the enactment of a bill requiring abortion providers in Idaho to provide a list of places to get a free ultrasound, and one banning harvesting organs or tissue from aborted fetuses. While the specific abortion restrictions in Texas that the U.S. Supreme Court struck down on Monday are not in Idaho law, Idaho is in the middle of one lawsuit over abortion restrictions that opponents say go beyond what the U.S. Constitution allows.
