AAF Files Amicus Brief in Idaho Abortion Case

November 27th, 2023

Advancing American Freedom led an amicus brief with 29 other amici challenging the Biden Administration’s lawsuit against Idaho which seeks to invalidate the state’s pro-life law on the basis of a radical pro-abortion interpretation of a Reagan-era health law, EMTALA, designed to ensure emergency care for those unable to pay.

“The federal government has adopted a revisionist interpretation of EMTALA post-Dobbs, one that would force pro-life doctors to complete on-demand abortions and circumvent state laws that ban abortion,” said J. Marc Wheat, General Counsel for AAF. “The Supreme Court returned abortion regulation to the states in Dobbs, but the Biden administration is still seeking to weigh into the domain of state law to protected abortion.”
