Governor Reynolds signs law requiring 24-hour waiting period for abortions


Governor Kim Reynolds has signed a bill into law that requires a 24-hour waiting period before a woman can get an abortion.

The waiting period was approved on the last day of the legislative session when House Republicans added a last-minute amendment without debate to an unrelated bill.

Planned Parenthood of the Heartland and the ACLU of Iowa have filed a lawsuit in hopes of imposing a temporary injunction to stop the law from taking effect on July 1st.
