Biden’s DOJ Attacks Pro-Life State Over Abortion Law

Biden’s Department of Justice, led by Attorney General Merrick Garland, is attacking Idaho over its six-week abortion ban.

The Hill reports:

The department argued that Idaho’s law conflicts with the federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA), a law that requires providers to offer medically stabilizing treatment in an emergency, even if that care is an abortion.

The lawsuit seeks an injunction to prevent enforcement of the law in situations where an abortion is necessary for stabilizing treatment for an emergency medical condition. The DOJ said the law will likely force providers to withhold care based on a “well-founded fear of criminal prosecution.”

The Idaho “trigger” law takes effect Aug. 25 and would subject doctors to arrest and criminal prosecution for performing an abortion, even if a patient is suffering from a medical emergency like ectopic pregnancy, complications of miscarriage or severe preeclampsia.

There are exceptions for rape, incest and for saving the life of the mother, though a rape or incest victim would have to provide a copy of a police report to the physician who would perform the procedure.

  1. Perhaps the State of Idaho should consult competent obstetricians who know that probles like that of ectopic pregnancy, complications of miscarriage and severe preeclampsia ARE a DEFINITE threat to the life of a pregnant woman if that’s true as reported.

    1. Elective abortions are NOT an emergency and, therefore, do not fall under EMTALA as the idiotic AG believes. Caring for active miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies, and pre-eclampsia are emergencies, but they are not considered abortions, so there are no doctors or ER’s who would refuse to treat those cases. Comparing elective abortions (falsely considered ‘reproductive healthcare’ by pro-choice abortionists) to ectopic pregnancies is not apples-to-apples. It’s more like comparing apples-to-bowling balls.

  2. Biden allows Chinese agression,Compromised joe biden and family are allowing China to take over our Country, you can’t open any business in China without them being 50% partners, why not the same for US policy? They steal our technology, bribe our politicians, and fxxx over our trade policies, they want to control the panama canal, the bidens are endorsing all their communist aggression,need anybody ask why?

  3. DIMM = death They support abortion, drug trafficking, deadly sexual behaviors, human trafficking, crime and criminals, and aid to Middle East terrorists.

  4. International corruption negatively affects U.S. financial markets, economic growth. FBI investigates many types of international corruption, their words not mine, except for the bidens,right ???
