Under state law, medical providers must submit reports to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare for every abortion they perform.
However, recent court records have brought to light that St. Alphonsus, a prominent hospital system in the Treasure Valley, has been performing abortions without filing documentation with state officials.
Idaho Family Policy Center investigated this further—and we discovered a shocking loophole in the current law that unintentionally allows for some abortions to go unreported.
In our groundbreaking new report, we explain how this legal loophole creates the potential for significantly undercounting the number of abortions performed in the state, and we propose actionable steps the state legislature can take to reform the process.
Read and share our report so we can call attention to this unacceptable statutory oversight and provide policymakers with accurate information on Idaho abortion trends!
