NPR: Supreme Court to Review Dispute Between Federal and State Governments on Emergency Abortions

The Supreme Court is set to hear arguments in a case from Idaho focused on abortion rights. The issue at hand involves whether a state can prevent a pregnant woman from receiving necessary medical treatment, including terminating a pregnancy, if her health is in grave danger. The case highlights a conflict between federal law, specifically the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act, and state laws in Idaho that restrict abortion to only when the mother’s life is at risk. This case raises questions about the balance between states’ rights and federal law, particularly regarding emergency medical care and reproductive rights.
