Activists protest on abortion at US Supreme Court

The US Supreme Court is hearing arguments over whether a near-total abortion ban in Idaho goes against a federal law requiring hospitals to provide care to patients with “emergency medical conditions”.

The Biden administration has sued Idaho over its abortion law, which has an exception for the life – but not the health – of the mother. Pro-abortion activists gathered outside the Supreme Court against the Idaho law, while anti-abortion activists say doctors are wilfully misinterpreting the federal law, which allows for life-threatening cases.
