Idaho’s Supreme Court has signed off on a law outlawing nearly all forms of abortion. On Friday, justices rejected lawsuits filed by abortion care providers who sought to stop Idaho’s so-called trigger law from taking effect later this month. The new law criminalizes abortions just six weeks into a pregnancy and makes it a felony to perform an abortion — with limited exceptions for cases of rape, incest or medical emergency. Idaho’s abortion ban still faces a legal challenge from the Department of Justice in a federal court.
