The latest abortion battle at the US Supreme Court fueled by federal law

The Supreme Court is set to weigh in on a high-stakes abortion case involving the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA), which requires hospitals to provide stabilizing care to patients with emergency medical conditions. The case questions whether EMTALA covers emergency abortions in states where the procedure is banned. The Biden administration argues that abortions should be protected under EMTALA. Idaho, which has a near-total abortion ban, argues that EMTALA cannot supersede its state law. The outcome of the case could have significant implications for women’s access to emergency care and abortion procedures across the country.
