Idaho Supreme Court blocks state’s ‘Texas style’ abortion law

Idaho’s Supreme Court ruled on Friday to temporarily block the state’s new “Texas-style” abortion law that bans the practice after six weeks.

The new law was signed in March and set to go into effect on April 22nd. Now it will not be allowed to proceed while the state considers the case.

The law would have allowed private citizens to sue health professionals who provide abortion after six weeks of a woman’s pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood sued Idaho shortly after the law was signed. The abortion provider also encouraged Idaho residents to “stock up” on birth control and Plan B pills.

The controversial move challenges a similar law put into effect in Texas that faced a challenge to the Supreme Court.

Other states have also pursued similar six-week abortion ban bills since. However, it is a Mississippi bill currently under consideration by the Supreme Court that has given pro-life supporters the most hope as it may rule that states will be given the right to determine future abortion laws, triggering new battles nationwide.

How anyone could think it is okay to kill a baby at any stage of pregnancy is beyond me. If you do’t want a baby then don’t get pregnant -it is that simple.
