Justices seem set to allow emergency abortions in Idaho for now, a prematurely posted opinion says

June 27, 2024

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court appears poised to allow emergency abortions in Idaho when a pregnant patient’s health is at serious risk, according to a copy of the opinion briefly posted on the court’s website Wednesday and obtained by Bloomberg News. “Today’s decision is not a victory for pregnant patients in Idaho. The Supreme Court acknowledged that its publications unit inadvertently posted a document Wednesday. Idaho argued its ban does allow abortions to save a pregnant patient’s life and that federal law does not require the exceptions to expand. Katie Daniel, the state policy director of Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, said an Idaho state court had ruled that women’s lives don’t need to be in immediate danger to act.
