Iowa Bans All Abortions After Point of Detection of Fetal Heartbeat


Republican state Rep. Steven Holt noted that he did "not agree with the exemptions in the amendment, for I believe that all unborn lives matter and that all unborn lives should be protected". Reynolds has no documentary evidence or other records explaining why she ordered the abrupt firing of longtime ally Iowa Finance Authority director David Jamison, who was accused of workplace sexual harassment, her office says.

Critics say this new law is an aggressive challenge to Roe v. Wade, with intentions to rally conservatives before November's midterm election.

Abortion rights supporters in Iowa and throughout the nation condemned the measure as unconstitutional and an affront to the rights of women.

The Chicago Tribune adds that more than 100 pro-abortion protesters gathered outside the state Capital to condemn the legislation on Friday, and some even left coat hangers, a symbol of a popular myth about illegal abortions before Roe v. Wade, by the desks of Reynolds' staffers.

Immediately after Reynolds' announcement Friday, branches of Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union in Iowa responded with plans to sue the state, the AP reports.

"It's ridiculous that our government can govern women's bodies", she said.




Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life, praised the law, saying it "will not only save lives, it also reminds us that abortion stops a beating heart". That didn't stop Planned Parenthood and its allies from rallying Friday morning across the street from the Capitol to promise to continue to fight for reproductive rights.

"I am here to tell Governor Reynolds: 'We will see you in court, '" said Suzanna de Baca, president of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland. "Iowa's fight, and it's on all of us to push back against these attacks on our lives, our bodies, our auto. our rights".

"The reason the U.S. Supreme Court would be unlikely to take it is because it's an easy case to strike down", Gowder said. "But we have to look at what's actually the right thing to do, and who should be making these decisions, and it is not us".

"This bill is an additional example of state politicians, according to the Trump-Pence government, adhering to policy following policy that strip out men and women's freedoms and availability of maintenance". Reynolds acknowledged that there would be a court challenge.

"We thank Iowa for recognizing that every life is a gift and that personhood has inherent dignity from the moment of conception", she said.
