Idaho Abortion Statistics

State abortion statistics from the leading public and private sources.

>

Collective state abortion statistics are gathered privately by the Guttmacher Institute and federally by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Because of reporting lag, their most recent data is often 2-3 years old. In most cases, state-level abortion facts are more current than the numbers reported by Guttmacher or the CDC. Guttmacher’s abortion statistics are estimates built on surveys of all known and suspected abortion providers; the CDC totals are made up of the actual abortion counts reported to the state health department by each abortion facility.

LEGAL STATUS OF ABORTION IN Idaho

In 2022—following the reversal of Roe v. Wade, elective abortion became illegal in Idaho. An abortion shall only be permitted if it is deemed necessary to prevent the death of the mother or if the conception occurred because of rape or incest. The threat of suicide does not constitute a legal justification for abortion, and sexual assault must be reported to law enforcement before an abortion can take place. The performance or attempted performance of an illegal abortion in Idaho is a felony punishable by no less than two (2) years and no more than (5) years in prison. The professional license of any health care professional who performs or attempts to perform an abortion—or assists with the procedure—shall be suspended for a minimum of six (6) months upon a first offense and shall be permanently revoked upon a subsequent offense. No woman upon whom an abortion is performed or attempted may be charged or convicted of a criminal offense in the death of her own unborn child.
