Iowa AG refuses to defend 'heartbeat' abortion law

Iowa faces lawsuit over its abortion ban — and the Democratic AG refuses to defend the state Trump Administration to Propose New Curbs on Abortion

And Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa have sued to block Iowa from implementing the harshest anti-abortion law in the nation.

"I understand and anticipate that this will likely be challenged in court, and that courts may even put a hold on the law until it reaches the Supreme Court", she said. Democrat Tom Miller said the decision to remove his office from the case was based on a belief that the measure "would undermine rights and protections for women".

The legal challenge of Iowa's new law that effectively bans almost all abortions in the state is starting in Polk County District Court.

Miller, who claimed that the law goes against his beliefs, recommended that a Chicago-based firm represent the state instead.

"It would mean that the four million people nationwide who depend on access to reproductive health care through Title X would lose access to information, counseling, and referral for abortion", continued Planned Parenthood.

The abortion-rights groups declined to make the legal documents public until the court clerk filed and stamped official copies.

Attorney General Tom Miller backed out from representing the Governor in the lawsuit due to personal objections to the law.

Iowa Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds said she anticipated the lawsuits when she signed Senate file 359.

Work has already started on 104 buildings, and the number of eligible schemes will be kept under review, the spokeswoman said. Theresa May confirmed the unsafe materials would be removed during Prime Minister's Questions earlier today.

"Since the Thomas More Society's mission is to protect women and children from the devastating consequences of abortion, when there is a choice between life and death, the Thomas More Society is honored to be called upon to defend life", Cannon said in the statement.

Pro-life advocates are calling on President Donald Trump to use regulations to rollback taxpayer subsidies to Planned Parenthood.

The Iowa law is the latest to test the legality of abortion restrictions.

The Louisiana bill is similar to a 15-week abortion ban that was passed in MS in March.

The law is evidence of the state's conservative shift after the 2016 election, when Republicans gained control of the Legislature and the governor's office for the first time in almost 20 years.

I recently received a letter from the The Family Foundation stating that the House of Delegates' budget creates a new $6 million fund that will go to the abortion industry and groups like Planned Parenthood.

A US appeals court has refused to dismiss a lawsuit by Planned Parenthood over videos that a group says show employees of the organization illegally selling parts of aborted fetuses.
