Summary List Placement
Idaho Gov. Brad Little signed HB 366, a ‘fetal heartbeat’ bill, into law. The measure bans abortions after 6 weeks. The legislation includes exceptions in cases of medical emergencies and pregnancies resulting from rape or incest.
The law will not go into effect immediately and will only go into effect if a similar ban is upheld in Idaho courts. Planned Parenthood said it plans to sue if the law is upheld and goes forward.
Let’s be clear: Nothing changes today or in the future. Abortion is still legal in Idaho, even after six weeks. This is a trigger law that would ONLY begin IF a similar ban is upheld in a separate court. And, of course, we’ll sue to stop it then. #idleg #idpol #politicalgames https://t.co/t4rdr6nle4
