Court blocks Idaho abortion ban regarding emergencies
2022-08-25

On Aug. 25, a U.S. district court granted a Biden Administration request by temporarily blocking Idaho's ban on abortion in situations where the ban conflicts with federal standards for emergency care, CNN reported.

"This Court is not grappling with" the larger questions about a right to an abortion, US District Judge B. Lynn Winmill wrote in handing down a preliminary injunction. "Rather, the Court is called upon to address a far more modest issue—whether Idaho's criminal abortion statute conflicts with a small but important corner of federal legislation. It does."

The Biden Administration had challenged parts of the ban, which was set to take effect on Aug. 25, under a law known as the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA), which establishes emergency-care requirements for certain healthcare providers.

The order is considered a victory for the Biden Administration, as it has had few options to respond to the Supreme Court's June reversal of Roe v. Wade.
