(Worthy News) – The Idaho Supreme Court on Friday upheld the state’s abortion ban, which restricts access to the procedure except in cases of rape, incest, or a threat to the life of the mother.
The state had previously enacted a “trigger law” that would ban abortion upon any ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that overturned the national constitutional right to abortion established in 1973’s Roe v. Wade ruling. The court did so in June of 2022, returning the right to regulate the procedure to the states in Dobbs v. Jackson.
That ruling saw many trigger laws take effect, including Idaho’s, though legal challenges have ensued and cast doubt upon the future of individual state bans. The South Carolina Supreme Court on Thursday determined that the state’s ban on abortion after six weeks of pregnancy violated the state’s constitution under the right to privacy.
