- Idaho Republican Gov. Brad Little signed legislation on Wednesday to ban so-called “abortion trafficking” in which an adult aids a minor in obtaining an abortion out of state without parental consent.
The law imposes a possible five-year prison sentence for anyone found guilty, The Hill reported. Abortion is legal is several neighboring states, including Washington, Oregon, Montana, and California.
Idaho currently bans nearly all abortions and has an enforcement mechanism wherein family members may sue doctors who perform such procedures.
