Judge Signals Support for DOJ in Challenge to Idaho Abortion Ban

Summary by Ground News
U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill in Boise expressed concerns that a near-total ban on abortions set to take effect in Idaho could prevent doctors from providing emergency care. He echoed the Biden administration's concerns that the Idaho law, which takes effect Thursday, could discourage doctors from offering emergency abortions. Judge says he plans to issue a written order by Wednesday on the Justice Department's request for a preliminary injunction. The Justice Department is not challenging the Idaho law in its entirety. It is asking that the ban should be blocked in situations where its enforcement would create a conflict with a federal law known as EMTALA.
