City Club of Boise - Contextualizing Reproductive Health in Idaho After the Dobbs Opinion
The Idaho Supreme Court’s 3-2 decision in January 2023 validated the state’s three abortion bans, including one that outlaws the procedure from conception. The ruling from Idaho's highest Judiciary followed the U.S. Supreme Court’s June decision in Dobbs that overturned Roe v. Wade. This City Club forum addressed Idaho abortion law from three professional perspectives, and fielded questions about the controversial and critical topic with respect to state and federal regulations.
