Planned Parenthood Advertises Out-of-State Abortions to Idaho Citizens Using Billboards



Planned parenthood advertising out-of-state abortion to idahoans

Planned Parenthood has bought for advertising space on six billboards in Idaho's Treasure Valley to steer pregnant women to out-of-state abortions, according to KTVB7

The billboards, according to Planned Parenthood Great Northwest Hawai'i, Alaska, Indiana, and Kentucky (PPGNHAIK) CEO Rebecca Gibron, are in reaction to pro-life measures in Idaho and for women who are confused if it is legal to leave the state to seek an abortion.

“We’ve created this information campaign to let Idahoans know where they can access safe and legal abortion outside of the state of Idaho,” Gibron said. “We intend to have these up for a good deal of time, to help bring awareness for Idahoans who need access to abortion care, to bring awareness to where they can receive that care out of the state of Idaho.”

Abortion is illegal in the state save in situations of rape with a police record, incest, or to save the mother's life. Abortionists who conduct abortions in the state may face a minimum of $20,000 in civil court for each damaged person, as well as two years in jail.

Gibron said that a letter from Attorney General Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) to state Rep. Brent Crane (R-Nampa) had caused women to be confused about the legality of out-of-state abortions, in which he stated: “An Idaho health care professional who refers a woman across state lines has given support or aid to the woman in performing or attempting to perform an abortion and has thus violated the statute.” The letter came shortly after the legislature passed an abortion trafficking bill, which prevents minors from obtaining abortions in other states without parental consent.

“Planned Parenthood Great Northwest Hawai‘i, Alaska, Indiana, Kentucky and two Idaho physicians are suing Labrador to stop him from applying the legal opinion,” according to the report.
