New Idaho Law Would Make it Illegal to Transport a Minor for Abortion – Freedomist News Wire

A bill introduced in the Idaho state Legislature this week would make the transportation of a minor across state lines and within Idaho, where abortion is banned, for an abortion a violation of human trafficking laws.

Idaho passed an abortion ban that prohibited the practice with few exceptions in 2022 after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and declared that the Constitution does not provide a right to abortion. Republican state Rep. Barbara Ehardt of Idaho Falls filed the six-page bill Tuesday that would amend state law to consider the transportation of a minor either across state lines without parental consent or within the state for the purpose of obtaining an abortion a form of human trafficking and a criminal act.
