Iowa governor signs 'beating heart' abortion ban, nation's strictest

H10 iowa abortion1

Declaring "it is immoral to stop a beating heart", Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed into law Friday the nation's most restrictive abortion ban.

The bill, approved by the Midwestern state's Republican-controlled legislature just two days earlier, was expected to trigger a legal battle, which conservatives hope will land the flashpoint social issue back at the US Supreme Court.

Kim Reynolds signed a six-week abortion ban into law on Friday. The bill also reportedly contains exceptions for victims of rape or incest. As of May 3, they're also pushing forward with a bill that will make it much more hard for Planned Parenthood to help promote sexual education.

The bill has been dubbed the "heartbeat" bill, a highly loaded term, as one doctor pointed out in a HuffPost piece in 2016, asking instead that they be referred to as "fetal pole cardiac activity".

The laws bans abortion in all circumstances after six weeks of being pregnant, which critics of the laws argue is earlier than most ladies are conscious they're pregnant.

However, a woman would have to report a rape within 45 days to law enforcement or a physician, and incest would need to be reported within 140 days, in order for an abortion to be allowed.

The new law doesn't go into effect until July 1, so there are nearly two months for Planned Parenthood and the ACLU to file legal motions. "This bill will be the vehicle that will ultimately provide change and provide the opportunity to overturn Roe v. Wade", he said.

Kanye receives instant backlash for 'slavery is a choice' remarks
TMZ got Black Lives Matter activist, DeRay Mckesson, on the line to sound off on the seemingly unfactual comments by Ye. Charlamagne said he approached Kanye about the comments he made about slavery . "You hear about slavery for 400 years".

Pro-choice advocates say it is unconstitutional, since the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a woman's right to choose an abortion before viability in 1992.

A similar court challenge is under way in Kentucky, which in April enacted a ban on a common abortion procedure from the 11th week of pregnancy.

"Politicians in Iowa are hell bent on controlling women's bodies, taking away our rights, and blocking access to health care". People will not stand for it, and we will not stand for it. "We will fight for our patients rights and access to care with everything we've got".

"The bold pro-life action taken by the Iowa legislature reflects growing national pro-life sentiment and restlessness under the extreme status quo imposed by Roe v. Wade", Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List said in a statement.
