Idaho governor signs ban on abortions after 6 weeks of pregnancy

Gov. Brad Little of Idaho, a Republican, signed into law a bill banning abortion after six weeks of pregnancy on Wednesday, making Idaho the first state to follow the lead of the Texas law that allows private citizens to sue abortion providers and doctors for terminating an unwanted pregnancy.

The measure in Idaho is the latest in a wave of anti-abortion bills at the state level, based on the expectation that the U.S. Supreme Court is set to overturn, or at least weaken Roe v. Wade, when it rules on a Mississippi abortion ban later this year.
