David Ripley: Idaho Senate Passes Historic Bill

March 16th, 2020 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

This past week the Idaho Senate approved SB 1385 by an overwhelming margin. This historic bill seeks to re-establish a “Trigger Law” in Idaho, whereby we will again recriminalize virtually all abortions in the state upon a reversal of Roe. Every Republican senator (but one) voted to affirm that they wanted to see a day when babies in the womb are again protected by the law. The Idaho Senate chose Life.

There are currently eight other states with “trigger laws” on the books. In each case, abortions automatically become illegal again once the Supreme Court re-establishes the authority of the states to defend the health and lives of their respective citizens.

Sen. Todd Lakey (R-Nampa) did an excellent job of making the case for this legislation to his colleagues in the Idaho Senate.

Democrat members of the Senate, of course, fought the bill. Planned Parenthood adamantly opposed the legislation in both committee and on the floor of the Senate.

One of the primary reasons to get this legislation placed in Idaho Code is the effect it will have on the next generation of Idahoans. It will begin teaching them that abortion is not only not right – it is a grave injustice to both child and mother. In fact, the State of Idaho views abortion as a crime.

And that message, we pray, will not be lost on the U.S. Supreme Court. Despite their best sales techniques and august declarations – the people of America are not buying the notion that killing preborn is (secretly) enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. After some 50 years, most Americans continue to assert that Roe is unjust and an affront to the history of that amazing document.

Hopefully other states will join us in enacting trigger laws. We understand that the Utah Legislature has just passed one. Acting together, the states can put tremendous pressure on the US Supreme Court to correct its gross twisting of the Constitution.

The Idaho House will take up SB 1385 this next week. We need your prayers to ensure that this historic legislation gets enacted prior to adjournment.
