Supreme Court to Determine Under What Circumstances Doctors Can Provide Emergency Abortions

The Supreme Court is considering whether state bans on abortions during medical emergencies are conflicting with federal healthcare law after the Roe v. Wade ruling. Idaho, one of 14 states banning abortion, faces questions from the liberal minority justices about the law’s impact on women’s health. The Biden administration argues that hospitals should be allowed to terminate pregnancies in emergencies where a patient’s life is at risk. Protests from both sides were present outside the court during arguments. Doctors have said the ban has impacted emergency care, with pregnant women being turned away from US emergency rooms. The case remains pending, with a ruling expected by the end of June.
