High Court’s Ruling in EMTALA Cases Could Extend Beyond Emergency Abortions
George Washington University

Last week the Supreme Court announced it would hear oral arguments in two related cases from Idaho that focus on the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) and its relationship to state abortion bans.

According to a new analysis published by a George Washington University health law expert, the outcome in these cases will also decide whether states can deprive people of their federal right to emergency care by outlawing disfavored emergency treatments.
