   After a long and intense debate, the House has voted 49-18 in favor of
   SB 1385, the abortion "trigger" bill to criminalize abortion in Idaho if
   Roe vs. Wade is overturned or there's a U.S. constitutional amendment that
   allows states to ban abortion. Rep. Megan Blanksma, R-Hammett, in her
   closing debate, said, "Everybody needs to face the consequences of their
   own personal choices." As for arguments that it's an injection of
   government into women's personal lives, Blanksma said, "I think that the
   government forces you to do a lot of things," starting with putting on
   seatbelts. She said this may be the most important injection of government
   into people's lives.

   The bill earlier passed the Senate; it now goes to the governor's desk.
   If it were to be "triggered," it would impose felony penalties on doctors
   who perform abortions, with exceptions only for rape or incest that have
   been officially reported, or the life of the mother.
