National Right to Life files friend of the court brief with U.S Supreme Court defending Idaho’s Defense of Life Act

by | Apr 23, 2024

WASHINGTON — On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral argument in the consolidated cases Moyle v. United States and Idaho v. United States.

On February 28, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) filed a friend of the court brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down the Biden Administration’s attempt to mandate abortion on demand throughout all fifty states in hospital emergency rooms. The brief supports Idaho’s pro-life law, Defense of Life Act.

NRLC’s brief argues that Biden’s abortion mandate under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) is contrary to that federal law which was only meant to protect emergency room patients from being dumped and does not mandate that the hospital provide medical care that is contrary to state law.

The U.S. Supreme Court docket for Moyle and Idaho  is available here, and the NRLC brief is available on the docket here.
