(BOISE, ID)  —  The number of Idaho women seeking abortions has gone up 36 percent in the past decade. Officials with Planned Parenthood of Idaho say that the number peaked in 2009 at 1,650. An estimated 40 percent of abortion procedures are being performed out of state, mostly in Washington . Experts say many women are going out of state because Idaho  has only two facilities that offer the procedure. A third clinic is set to open next month in Meridian .
