Panel OKs 20-Week Limit On Abortion

The House State Affairs Committee has voted along party lines to pass SB 1165, the 20-week abortion ban, sending it to the House with a recommendation that it “do pass.” Rep. Carlos Bilbao, R-Emmett, said, “Anyone, anyone who denies the existence of life at the beginning is wrong in mind. And when it comes to a standard that the courts say, my standard is life, my standard is what God gave me to make a right choice, and I'll make the right choice today”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: According to a tweet from S.L. Fisher (who was listening to State Affairs discussion), lawsuits filed against unconstitutional anti-abortion legislation has cost Idaho $4.1M. Should Idaho pass legislation simply to make a statement re: its stand on abortion?
