BOISE, April 10, 2023 /Standard Newswire/ -- Stanton Public Policy Center responds to Idaho Attorney General, Raúl Labrador, publicly rescinding a letter regarding his important and valid legal analysis on chemical abortion pills in Idaho.
Stanton Public Policy Center is a women's advocacy and educational group that works on issues of human rights and justice that empower and inspire women. It is affiliated with Stanton Healthcare which has life-affirming women's health clinics in America and internationally.
Brandi Swindell, Founder and CEO of Stanton Public Policy Center, states:
- "While it is profoundly disappointing and confusing that Idaho's Attorney General Labrador has publicly rescinded his letter regarding important and valid legal analysis on chemical abortions in Idaho, Stanton Public Policy Center believes the information he provided in a letter to a state representative is still accurate and affirms the law.
- Idaho law prohibits the provision of chemical abortion pills and Idaho's criminal prohibition on abortion includes providing abortion pills.
- Idaho law prohibits the promotion and advertising of chemical abortion pills.
- Idaho law prohibits referring women across state lines to obtain abortion pills or services.
"Stanton Public Policy Center received permission to release Attorney General Labrador's legal analysis in which he listed clear points that represent Idaho's abortion law.
"Attorney General Labrador's legal analysis is:
"So while Attorney General Labrador has rescinded his letter, he has not 'rescinded' the facts and criminal sanctions detailed in the letter and those who violate them will face criminal violations.
"It is the hope of Stanton Public Policy Center that Attorney General Labrador is not being bullied into rescinding his letter by Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. We trust he will have the same commitment to protect Idaho's women and the rule of law as Governor Brad Little, the Idaho legislature, Stanton Healthcare, and Idaho's pro-life movement.
"Stanton Public Policy Center is seeking a meeting with the Attorney General to clear up any confusion caused by his actions."
"We're in a new, post-Roe landscape in Idaho and the nation. Questions about newly implemented laws are to be expected. That's why Stanton Healthcare was thankful for the clear-cut, legitimate legal analysis of Attorney General Labrador last month regarding Idaho abortion laws. The attorney general made clear Idaho is one of the safest places in America for babies in the womb, and for their mothers to receive real medical care and support.
"We are now troubled by Attorney General Labrador's withdrawal of his letter to a state representative, and we are earnestly seeking clarification regarding why his letter was withdrawn."
