The overturning of Roe v. Wade was a major milestone in the fight against Democrats’ radical anti-human agenda.
That Supreme Court’s decision spurred on a litany of legislative action in pro-life states across the country.
And Idaho takes this incredible step in the fight to protect unborn children.
Abortion activists are finding ways around the law
One of the most controversial practices is people traveling across state lines to find clinics and drugs.
Some Democrat-controlled states have even promoted the easy access to abortion in their states to those living in more pro-life states where abortions are limited.
Now, Idaho is leading the way on dealing with this new phenomenon.
On April 5, Idaho Governor Brad Little took a major step to stop what lawmakers in the state are calling “abortion trafficking.”
The law will take effect in 30 days and will make it a criminal offense to transport minors across state lines for the purpose of having an abortion.
The bill does, however, make an exception in cases in which parents consent to the procedure.
The bill describes abortion trafficking as an incident in which a minor is transported across state lines “with the intent to conceal an abortion from the parents or guardian…”
Abortion trafficking will carry stiff penalties for parties involved
Governor Little said that the law “seeks only to prevent unemancipated minor girls from being taken across state lines for an abortion…”
He added that it won’t impact adult women, who will still be able to seek abortion services outside of the state.
Under the new law, anyone who engages in abortion trafficking will face up to five years in prison.
The law includes penalties for medical professionals and any relatives involved in the crime.
Medical professionals will be civilly responsible for a minimum of $20,000 in damages.
Needless to say, the folks at Planned Parenthood are losing their minds over the move.
Abortion activists say the “despicable” law will cause “exodus” from Idaho
Planned Parenthood Alliance Advocates issued a response saying that Governor Little was pushing a bill that no one wants.
“Yet again, Idaho’s governor disregarded constituents and signed HB242 into law creating the nation’s first crime of so-called ‘abortion trafficking,’” Planned Parenthood Alliance Advocates’ statement read.
The organization called the bill “despicable,” and vowed “to do everything in their power to stop it.”
Washington Democrat Governor Jay Inslee called on Governor Little to reconsider the bill, claiming it would “certainly have many unacceptable consequences that cannot be cured.”
He told Little that Idaho would see an “exodus” from health care professionals, and an “increased mortality rate” amongst girls.
Governor Inslee might be better suited to focus on the major problems that are rocking his state before weighing in on another’s policy decisions.
