18-601. Interpretation of state statutes and the state constitution. The supreme court of the United States having held in the case of "Planned Parenthood v. Casey" that the states have a "profound interest" in preserving the life of preborn children, Idaho hereby expresses the fundamental importance of that "profound interest" and it is hereby declared to be the public policy of this state that all state statutes, rules and constitutional provisions shall be interpreted to prefer, by all legal means, live childbirth over abortion.
