Hospital to End Labor and Delivery Services – Cites Political Climate
March 23, 2023 | Idaho
An Idaho hospital announced it will end its labor and delivery services in mid-May, “obliquely referring to recent restrictions on abortion” as one of its reasons, ABC News reported on Wednesday.
In a press release on March 17, Bonner General Health in Sandpoint said it will no longer be providing obstetrical care due in part to the state’s “legal and political climate.” Bonner General Health serves roughly 9,000 people. (Excerpt from Breitbart.)
