“Abortion is an essential aspect of healthcare!”

A crowd of individuals gathered at the Idaho State Capitol on Sunday to express their unwavering support for abortion rights.

The event took place in anticipation of this week’s Supreme Court hearing on the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act. This act grants the right to emergency care for individuals in need, even if there are laws in Idaho that prohibit abortions in specific emergency situations.

According to Mistie Dellicarpini-Tolman, a representative from Planned Parenthood, the current situation regarding abortion rights is of utmost importance. Dellicarpini-Tolman emphasizes that if the Supreme Court supports Idaho, it will severely restrict people’s access to vital abortion services.

An interactive experience showcasing stories of emergency abortions providing lifesaving care was also available at the rally.
