WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) released the statement below following the Supreme Court’s dismissal of Idaho and Moyle, et al. v. United States. This reinstates the lower court order preventing Idaho from enforcing its abortion ban when the termination of a pregnancy is needed to prevent serious harm to a woman’s health. 

“While today’s decision will allow women in Idaho to receive the emergency stabilizing care they need, it is far from a victory. This ruling is just a delay and continues to leave women who need life saving medical care across the country with an uncertain future. Since the disastrous Dobbs decision was handed down by this same court two years ago, we have seen its effects across the country, including women being forced away from emergency rooms and left to travel hundreds of miles for health care. But our current reality doesn’t need to be our future. Our fight continues to codify the protections of Roe v. Wade into law and ensure that women can get the healthcare they need.”
