First take

Wonder what implications this may have for the new Wisconsin 20-week abortion ban: Idaho's ban on abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy was tossed by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday. It said the law "is facially unconstitutional because it categorically bans some abortions before viability. Section 18-608(2) is facially unconstitutional because it places an undue burden on a woman’s ability to obtain an abortion by requiring hospitalizations for all second-trimester abortions." All of which was intended, of course, as a feature of the law, not a bug.
