The ruling comes as legal challenges over the laws continue and the court sped up the timeline for lawsuits to be decided.
Two justices agreed with expediting the cases, but noted that they felt laws should not be enforced until the legal process has been completed.
The Justice Department is also suing Idaho in federal court over a near-total abortion ban; the judge has not yet ruled in that case.
The state Supreme Court's ruling means that potential relatives of an embryo or fetus can now sue abortion providers over procedures done after six weeks of gestation and another stricter ban criminalizing all abortions is slated for later in August.
