DOJ Sues Idaho Over Abortion Law

While many of us are aware that the U.S. Supreme Court has officially reversed Roe v. Wade declaring that there is no longer any constitutional right to abortion, did you know that in response to that the federal government established a Reproductive rights task force through the Department of Justice to oversee state abortions laws to ensure they do not violate any federal laws. 

In this episode Nurse Alice talks about the DOJ’s Reproductive Rights task force put into place to oversee state abortion laws and their first legal action against the state of Idaho whose abortion law is set to go into effect on Aug. 25 and imposes a near-total ban on abortion.  The DOJ alleges the Idaho abortion law violates the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) in situations where an abortion is necessary to stabilize treatment for an emergency medical condition.
