Supreme Court Kicks Decision on EMTALA Back Down to Lower Court, Emergency Abortion Available in Idaho in the Meantime

In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court of the United States dismissed the case regarding Idaho's violation of the federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) as "improvidently granted," and ultimately sent it back to a lower court to be retried. As the case moves through the lower court, emergency abortion care will be reinstated in Idaho.

Interested Parties Memo: Reproductive Health in Kentucky and Indiana Two Years Post Dobbs

As we approach nearly two years without federal protections for abortion access following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, growing evidence shows that abortion bans not only impact abortion access but also increasingly block most forms of health care in restricted states. Devastatingly, the Dobbs decision has impacted maternal health, contraceptive care, providers, patients, health centers, and support networks and has created a patchwork of policies where zip codes largely determine a person’s ability to access care. Both Kentucky and Indiana have near-total abortion bans in place.

Planned Parenthood Alliance Advocates Kentucky Calls on Gov. Beshear to Veto HB 174

Planned Parenthood Alliance Advocates - Kentucky strongly urges you to veto House Bill 174, a bill that puts young Kentuckians’ health and lives in jeopardy. Contrary to public health and young people’s best interests, parental involvement laws force young people to delay or forego care altogether. Further, this bill will discourage young people from seeking help from a trusted adult. This bill flies in the face of decades of data demonstrating that requiring parental involvement makes it less likely that young people will get the care they need and more likely that they’ll face harmful consequences. HB 174 creates new barriers for young people trying to access needed health care, and its one-size-fits all approach will harm, not help, young people.
