Part of Idaho’s abortion ban has been blocked while a lawsuit challenging the ban is still ongoing. Doctors are not able to perform abortions unless the pregnant person’s life is at risk or in cases of rape or incest. Contact us at reprolegalhelpline.org if you have any questions about the law and your rights.
HB 242 (April 5th, 2023): Governor Little signed HB 242 into law which will go into effect on May 5th, 2023. The law makes it a crime for an adult (who is not a parent or legal guardian) to help a young person leave Idaho to get an abortion. The law does not make it a crime for the young person to seek abortion services outside Idaho, or for a parent/legal guardian to help the young person leave the state for an abortion. If you have questions about this law or accessing abortion, please contact the Repro Legal Helpline at reprolegalhelpline.org or by leaving us a message at 844-868-2812.
Part of Idaho’s abortion ban is now in effect. The ban means that doctors in the state are only allowed to perform an abortion if the life of the pregnant person is at risk. A doctor can also provide an abortion to someone who is a survivor of rape or incest. For this exception, the pregnant person must report the rape or incest to the police and then provide a copy of the police report to the doctor providing the abortion.
If you need an abortion, you may need to travel to a state where abortion is not currently banned. Return to the home page to check the law in other states near you. You can also call our helpline to learn more about accessing abortion, the law, and your rights.
