( – BREAKING NOW: The presidential administration of Joe Biden, under fierce pressure from pro-abortion liberals who make up the base of the Democrat Party, is suing Idaho over a soon-to-take-effect abortion law that Biden’s Department of Justice argues doesn’t protect mother’s lives.

As the Daily Caller lays out in “Biden DOJ Sues Idaho Over State’s Abortion Law“:

“President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is suing Idaho over a state abortion law in the first such DOJ lawsuit following the Supreme Court’s June 24 decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

“The lawsuit, filed Tuesday, alleges that Idaho’s abortion ban, which is set to take effect Aug. 25, will prevent doctors from performing medically necessary abortions and that enforcement will result in women’s deaths. The lawsuit lists ectopic pregnancies and severe preeclampsia as conditions that doctors would be prevented from treating under the law.” [emphasis added]


“Idaho’s abortion ban was passed in 2020 as a “trigger law” set to go into effect after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. The law threatens healthcare professionals who perform criminal abortions with two to five years in prison and requires those who do perform abortions to prove that they did so to save the life of the mother.” [emphasis added]

Legal experts tell Right Is Right the case may be the first post-Dobbs abortion case to wind its way up to the United States Supreme Court.
