In 2011, Idaho passed an unconstitutional 20-week ban on abortion. The law would have banned all abortions after 20 weeks post-fertilization with only limited exceptions for situations in which an abortion would be necessary to either save a woman’s life or to prevent the risk of substantial and irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function. The law excludes mental health from this narrow health exception and prohibits a physician from performing an abortion even if he or she believes there is a risk that the woman may commit suicide. Jennie McCormack was charged under the law for inducing her own abortion, and she later challenged the law in federal court. In 2013 a U.S. District Judge struck down the law. Following two years of litigation, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in 2015 that the law violates Supreme Court precedent protecting a woman’s constitutional right to a pre-viability abortion.
