Court rejects Idaho attempt to dismiss suit seeking expanded medical exceptions to abortion ban

BY NICK ROBERTSON - 12/30/23 9:17 AM ET

An Idaho state court rejected an attempt to dismiss a suit seeking to establish further exceptions to the state’s abortion laws on Friday.

The case, brought by four women and two doctors, seeks to expand the allowable circumstances for an abortion procedure to include emergency medical service. Idaho has one of the most strict abortion care bans in the country.

Idaho 4th District Judge Jason Scott rejected state Attorney General Raul Labrador’s attempt to dismiss the suit, allowing it to go forward as a challenge to state law.

Scott did agree with Labrador to reduce the scope of the suit, however, limiting arguments to specifically the circumstances of abortion care in respect of the state constitution’s rights to enjoy and defend life and the right to secure safety.

Idaho being one of the states with the most drastic abortion bans, I would have been very disappointed if they had succeeded in getting this case thrown out. This is another small step for reproductive rights!
