Idaho Republicans Have to Roll Back Abortion Restrictions and They Feel 'Sad'


Idaho is a Republican stronghold. The GOP, which controls both legislative chambers and the governor's office, has used its power to enact anti-choice legislation, including a pair of bills in 2015 that barred doctors from administering medication abortion via telemedicine, a technology connecting doctors and patients through video conferencing. ShutterstockA court settlement is forcing Idaho Republicans to repeal a ban on administering medication abortion via telemedicine.Several Republican lawmakers on the House State Affairs Committee reportedly teared up Monday while voting to send the repeal legislation, HB250, to the full house, as the Associated Press reported.“It is my sad duty, Mr. Chairman, to ask this committee to support house bill 250 in order to preserve our options going forward,” David Ripley, director of anti-choice outfit Idaho Chooses Life, told the house panel on Monday.
