Wyoming Abortion Ban Halted; Idaho Maternity Ward Closes as Doctors Fear Criminal Penalties

HeadlineMar 23, 2023

Back in the United States, a judge in Wyoming has put a temporary hold on the state’s recently enacted abortion ban — pending a legal challenge — citing the constitutional right of Wyoming residents to make individual healthcare decisions.

Meanwhile, in Idaho, one hospital announced it would stop delivering babies as too many doctors have left the state over its abortion ban, which criminalizes abortion providers. Expectant residents of Sandpoint in northwest Idaho will now have to drive 46 miles for labor and delivery care.
