Burkhart quoted on Idaho abortion laws

Ross Burkhart, professor of political science in the School of Public Service, was quoted in Courthouse News, an online source focusing primarily on judiciary news. A Sept. 17 article entitled “The future of Idaho abortion laws examined” takes an in-depth look at the likely landscape for abortion rights in Idaho in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision, both in terms of state legislative action as well as state and federal current court cases.

In the article, Burkhart comments on the likelihood or unlikelihood of further legislation at the Idaho Statehouse. He also looks at how large-scale employers in the state may react to change in law, noting that the influence abortion bans will have on businesses is still new and undiscovered.
