Attorney advocating for abortion ban frustrates Amy Coney Barrett.

Justice Amy Coney Barrett provided the crucial vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. In defending Idaho’s abortion restrictions, Joshua Turner condescendingly dismissed concerns pointed out by Barrett, irritating her. The case revolves around a clash between Idaho law and a federal statute requiring stabilizing treatment before a patient is gravely ill. Barrett and other Justices criticized Turner’s inconsistent arguments, highlighting the real-life implications for pregnant women. The gender divide on the court was revealing, with male justices more concerned about potential harms to the spending clause than the life-and-death consequences for women. The case could have implications for multiple states with similar abortion bans.
