Idaho has enacted a new bill that allows families to sue doctors for performing abortions on family members.
Gov. Brad Little signed the bill into law on Wednesday. The bill is the first to pass anywhere in the country that is inspired by a controversial Texas law banning abortions six weeks after conception. Once the bill is officially signed, it will officially become law in 30 days.
“I stand in solidarity with all Idahoans seeking to protect the lives of unborn babies,” Little wrote in a letter announcing her decision.
This is a developing story and will be updated when more information becomes available.
