STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
RS30171 / H0098
This legislation amends sections in the chapter of Idaho Code related to human trafficking by adding definitions
related to the illegal trafficking of minors to procure a criminal abortion. The legislation also amends the section
of Idaho Code dealing with criminal abortion by prohibiting anyone from trafficking a minor for a criminal
abortion with the intent of concealing the crime from the minor's parents. This legislation also authorizes the
State Attorney General to prosecute at his or her discretion for a crime committed under the section governing
criminal abortions. This legislation also provides for civil remedies.
There should be no impact to the General Fund. Should the State Attorney General's office pursue prosecutions,
they are currently funded.
