Iowa's Republican governor to sign law banning abortion at six weeks

King told Perkins that he had "every expectation" that Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds would sign the bill into law.

Planned Parenthood held a rally outside the Capitol Friday and said they plan to file a lawsuit against Governor Reynolds since she signed the bill into law.

The fetal heartbeat bill would ban nearly all abortions as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

Known as the "fetal heartbeat" bill, the measure was attached to state legislation banning the sale and transfer of fetal remains.

Democratic Representative Beth Wessel-Kroeschell spoke against the legislation on the floor of the Iowa House of Representatives on Tuesday.

But pro-life state legislators, including Republican Sen.

The Iowa abortion law does provide for exceptions in the case of rape, incest, and fetal abnormalities.

According to the Register, proponents of the bill hope it will spark a legal debate that ultimately overturns Roe v. Wade in the Supreme Court.

But the Supreme Court in 2016 rejected appeals by both North Dakota and Arkansas to preserve similar "heartbeat" laws, which had been struck down by lower courts.

The state already has the most restrictive laws in place, with regards to abortion, which prohibited most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Kim Reynolds has signed a six-week abortion ban into law, marking the strictest abortion regulation in the nation. Reynolds has no documentary proof or different data explaining why she ordered the abrupt firing of longtime ally Iowa Finance Authority director David Jamison, who was accused of office sexual harassment, her workplace says. Rick Bertrand (R) said earlier this week.

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 pro-abortion crowd likes to wail about not going back because they really want abortion laws in this country to be even more lenient.

So, how much do we need to worry about this bill and the future of Roe v. Wade?

Fetal heartbeat proposals like the new Iowa bill have not been promoted by all organizations in the pro-life movement. Iowa's Republican-controlled Legislature approved the legislation earlier in the week.

"The only reason this can be considered unconstitutional is because we have not determined in the courts when life begins", said State Rep. Shannon Lundgren, Iowa Republican.

"We support the life-giving intent of the provisions in the bill and we want to do everything we can to support that", Bishop Nickless said.
