Day 909

1/ An Iowa judge temporarily blocked the state’s new six-week abortion ban. For now, abortion is legal again in Iowa up to 20 weeks of pregnancy while the legal challenge plays out in the court system. On Friday, Gov. Kim Reynolds signed the “fetal heartbeat” law, which took effect immediately and banned nearly all abortions after cardiac activity in the embryo in detected, which can occur about six weeks into a pregnancy – before most women know they are pregnant.
