Planned Parenthood, ACLU Sue To End Iowa's 'Fetal Heartbeat' Abortion Ban


(Reuters) - Planned Parenthood and the Iowa branch of the American Civil Liberties Union said they sued on Tuesday to stop a state law from coming into effect that would impose the strictest abortion limits in the United States. Iowa’s Republican-controlled legislature voted last month to outlaw an abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, effectively banning the procedure at about the six-week mark, which may be before a woman realizes she is pregnant. The lawsuit was anticipated by some sponsors of the law, who hoped to trigger a challenge to Roe v. Supreme Court’s 1973 decision that established that women have a constitutional right to an abortion. https://ift.tt/2wLAHvg http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
