Federal judge partially blocks Idaho abortion ban

Abortion-rights advocates and abortion-rights opponents demonstrate in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on Dec. 1, as the court hears arguments in a case from Mississippi, where a law would ban abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, well before fetal viability.

Abortion-rights advocates and abortion-rights opponents demonstrate in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on Dec. 1, as the court hears arguments in a case from Mississippi, where a law would ban abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, well before fetal viability.

Idaho's latest abortion law goes into effect Thursday, with some restrictions.

Those restrictions come from a federal judge, who Wednesday night put some parts of the law on hold while the Biden Administration sues Idaho in federal court.

James Dawson, Boise State Public Radio reporter, joined Idaho Matters to break down the very latest information.

My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
