The abortion ban in Idaho is forcing pregnant patients to seek services in other states.

Dr. Stacy Seyb, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist in Boise, Idaho, has had at least four patients airlifted out of state due to severe pregnancy complications. Idaho’s abortion ban, with few exceptions, forces patients to seek care elsewhere, causing delays, financial burdens, and emotional distress. The Supreme Court is debating whether Idaho’s ban violates federal law requiring emergency care. The ban’s impact is evident in cases like a patient who lost both twins after being airlifted to Oregon for a late-term complication. Doctors emphasize the urgency of accessible care for pregnant women facing life-threatening situations.
