Lawsuit over Idaho’s abortion reporting law put on hold

A federal lawsuit against the state of Idaho over new abortion reporting requirements has been put on hold while the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals considers a judge’s ruling rejecting a preliminary injunction.

U.S. District Court Judge David C. Nye on Wednesday granted the stay at the request of Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands and Idaho officials.

The law went into effect on July 1 and created a list of what lawmakers deemed to be complications of abortion, and it required health professionals to report when they occurred.

Planned Parenthood filed the lawsuit in July contending the reporting rules are unconstitutional and intended to stigmatize women seeking medical care.

Supporters say the requirements are necessary to ensure abortions are provided safely.
