BOISE, ID — Abortion has quickly become a top issue leading up to the 2022 midterm election and rightfully so, but this November has even more at stake with attacks on minorities, the medical field and education system coming from Idaho candidates. 

Idaho lawmakers have repeatedly stood in the way of beneficial bills as well as brought forward harmful bills for people who can get pregnant, the LGBTQ+ community and education workers in the last two years. Republicans have shot down bills providing six months of birth control (SB 1260) and banning conversion therapy (HB 483), a scientifically unfounded and disgusting practice that continues in our state today. 

Laurie Lickley and Codi Galloway voted for bills to jail parents for seeking health care for their trans children (HB 675) and although it did not pass, voted for a bill threatening jail time for all public librarians for the books they have on their shelves (HB 666). 

These votes show us where candidates’ values lie and they are not with the people of Idaho. At every step, they want to insert their own beliefs into personal medical decisions that should be left up to the individual. This is dangerous, irresponsible and unacceptable. 

“Republicans are doing everything in their power to harm the underrepresented constituents who need support the most,” said Mistie DelliCarpini-Tolman, Idaho State Director for Planned Parenthood Alliance Advocates. “Already we’ve seen the devastating impact their policies have had on pregnant people with the current abortion bans, but they aren’t satisfied there. If given complete control again, they will push us to even further extremes.”
