PRESS RELEASE: Attorney General Labrador Files Reply to SCOTUS in Idaho v. United States

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Today, Attorney General Raúl Labrador filed state’s Reply Brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in State of Idaho v. United States of America, a case confronting questions about a state’s authority to regulate abortion since the overturn of Roe v. Wade in the 2022 Dobbs decision, which put abortion laws back under individual state control.

Labrador was assisted by attorneys at Alliance Defending Freedom and Cooper & Kirk.

Soon after Idaho passed the Defense of Life Act, the Biden Administration sued the State of Idaho, claiming its interpretation of federal law passed in 1986 requiring emergency treatment to all persons irrespective of ability to pay superseded Idaho’s authority to regulate abortion.

This case will be argued before the Supreme Court on April 24th.

“Idaho’s Defense of Life Act is perfectly consistent with the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act, which provides explicit protections for ‘unborn children’ in four separate places,” said Attorney General Labrador. “But the Biden Administration is trying to use one life-affirming law to invalidate another.

The administration’s radical interpretation of federal law is nothing more than a reckless disregard for Idaho’s right to protect life. We are asking the Supreme Court to end the administration’s unlawful overreach and to respect the people of Idaho’s decision to safeguard the lives of women and their unborn children.”
