A new Idaho law, signed Thursday by Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter, will provide better information about how many women are injured by abortions in Idaho each year.
Idaho Chooses Life celebrated Otter’s decision to sign the law.
“We believe this is landmark legislation because, in coming years, we will be able to learn how abortion affects women and girls in both the short-term and long-term,” the pro-life group said in an email to supporters. “For the first time we will not be dependent upon Planned Parenthood or the FDA to tell us what they want us to hear.”
The group said medical professionals and counselors also will be required to file a report to the state when they treat a woman for health problems related to abortion.
