“Idaho’s law would make it a criminal offense for doctors to provide the emergency medical treatment that federal law requires,” said US Attorney General Merrick Garland.

    Trying to make positive human law supersede the natural and revealed divine law that binds every soul, believer or unbeliever. Garland's argument is another strawman, ala Obama's made up scenarios. Which prolife law would ever or could ever interfere with emergency medical treatment? The medical interventions in the moral textbook cases of ectopic pregnancy and cancerous uterus (often used to explain the principle of "double effect") cut the legs out from under Garland's utterly false assertion.
