Moyle v. United States (2024)

FFRF signed onto this amicus brief concerning emergency abortion care on March 28th, 2024. This case dealt with the rights of pregnant people under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) in the state of Idaho. EMTALA requires hospitals to stabilize patients experiencing a medical emergency at Medicare-funded hospitals.The United States filed suit against Idaho officials to ensure that abortion care is available to stabilize patients, which directly conflicts with Idaho’s limitations on abortion.

The brief argued that the Supreme Court should preserve EMTALA because it protects pregnant people and ensures access to emergency care.

This brief was coordinated and drafted by the National Women’s Law Center and was signed by a coalition of over 100 groups.
