Louisiana appeals court hears arguments on "admitting privileges" abortion law

Louisiana appeals court hears arguments on

Backers of the legislation, which failed to get a single Democratic vote in either Iowa chamber, expressed hope it could challenge Roe vs. Wade, the landmark 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that established women have a right to terminate pregnancies until a fetus is viable.

The possible retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy - a seat that Trump could fill - has also encouraged states like Iowa to pass these restrictive bills. The bill now goes to the Republican governor, Kim Reynolds, an abortion opponent, who has not said publicly whether she will sign it into law.

She said the program expects Reynolds to sign the legislation before going to the courts.

In an email carrying the Washington Post's headline, "Iowa lawmakers approve the most restrictive abortion bill", they asked Democrats to "chip in $5 or more right now to help defeat the Republican legislators who just took away a woman's right to make her own health care decisions". Critics say that would ban the medical procedure before some women know they're pregnant.

The legislation would effectively ban most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, with exemptions for cases of rape and incest.

The bill would require physicians to conduct an ultrasound to detect a heartbeat.

If the bill is passed, then Iowa's only OBGYN residency program at the University of Iowa would lose its accreditation. "The governor's office has not received the bill from the legislature to review it".

The bill's unique provisions in the state - for example, its inclusion of criminal penalties - could draw litigation regardless, said Schilling. However, amendments passed loosened the bill's abortion restrictions, allowing the bill to garner extra votes it needed to pass.

Some Republicans said they didn't want these exceptions included, but they still agreed to vote for the bill. The case made its way to the US Supreme Court, where it was blocked permanently.

If upheld, it could cost the UI OB/GYN residency program, university officials have said.

(Des Moines) - Legislators in the Iowa Senate have given their approval to a bill created to battle the opioid epidemic in Iowa. "For instance, there are some counties in southwest Iowa - that would be Senator (Mark) Costello's district - where we had 109 opioid prescriptions for every 100 individuals in that county".

"We are a pipeline for obstetrics and gynecology in the state of Iowa", she said.

"I wish I could be there to hear it in person", Elson said.

A federal district judge in Baton Rouge blocked enforcement of the law previous year. He said a doctor could be charged with murder even if she believed an abortion was a medical emergency or medically necessary.
