Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the lawsuit in a press conference on Tuesday afternoon. The Biden administration’s chief prosecutor claimed that the Idaho law illegally restricts access to abortion in some cases where the life of the mother is at risk.

“If a patient comes into the emergency room with a medical emergency jeopardizing the patient’s life or health, hospitals must provide the treatment necessary to stabilize that patient,” Garland said, according to The Wall Street Journal. “This includes abortion when that is the necessary treatment.”
