Idaho’s top court latest in red state to weigh abortion ban


BOISE, Idaho (AP) — In deeply conservative Idaho, it’s expected that abortion will be banned eventually, but abortion rights advocates are continuing their legal challenges.

They were before the state’s top court Wednesday to ask the justices to continue blocking enforcement of three laws intended to restrict the services.

Similar legal challenges are playing out in red states across the U.S. In some of them, that’s allowed clinics to continue to offer abortion services, for now at least.

In the first test of voter sentiment after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision, Kansas voters on Tuesday rejected a ballot measure that would have allowed the Republican-controlled Legislature to tighten restrictions or ban the procedure outright.
