TITUSVILLE, FL - Priests for Life National Director Frank Pavone released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to dismiss Moyle v. United States.

“The Supreme Court’s decision today to dismiss Moyle v. United States/Idaho v. United States means that the question is still to be decided as to whether the abortion-loving Biden Administration and Democrat Party can use federal laws like EMTALA to push abortion, even though they have never been used for that before.

“The fact is that EMTALA is a law that prevents “patient dumping,” that is, turning patients away from emergency rooms if they cannot afford treatment to stabilize them in a medical emergency.

“It does not set a ‘standard of care.’ It does not tell doctors what treatments they are to provide. The understanding is that they provide what is available in that state. If a state prohibits abortion, then that procedure is not available in that state, and there is no conflict with EMTALA.

“Finally, Idaho’s law actually does not conflict with EMTALA because Idaho’s law does in fact permit abortions for life-saving emergencies.

“We are confident that when the Court’s threshold for standing is met, this case will be decided in favor of Idaho and against the efforts of the Democrat Party and Biden to push abortion wherever they can, even if it means distorting federal laws in ways that were never envisioned.”
