In the United States have banned abortion

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds has signed a six-week abortion ban into law, marking the strictest abortion regulation in the nation.

Abortion has been outlawed in the U.S. state of Iowa for women about six weeks pregnant.

Mississippi's Republican governor in signed into law a bill banning abortion after 15 weeks with some exceptions in March, sparking an immediate court challenge by abortion rights' advocates.

Reynolds' signature came shortly after state Planned Parenthood affiliates and the left-wing American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) threatened a lawsuit to block the law's enforcement, CBS News reports. Specifically, it requires a physician to perform an abdominal ultrasound when testing for a detectable fetal heartbeat and to inform the pregnant woman in writing whether a fetal heartbeat was detected, and if so, that an abortion is prohibited. Courts have immediately issued stays to prevent similar laws in other states from going into effect.

The Iowa House of Representatives passed the measure in a 51-46 vote late May 1, and the Senate approved the House-endorsed bill 29-17 early May 2.

"All women, regardless of age, income or race, should be able to obtain reproductive health services, including abortion, free from political and economic barriers", she said.

Should Reynolds sign the bill, it will nearly certainly be challenged in federal court, where the case would likely end up before the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds is expected to receive the bill within the next couple of days, according to her spokeswoman Brenna Smith.

"The ACLU of Iowa, along with Planned Parenthood, will not let this unsafe, unconstitutional law stand", said ACLU's Mark Stringer. Reynolds said. "For me, my faith leads me to protect every Iowan, no matter how small".

"However, this is bigger than just a law; this is about life".

Planned Parenthood of the Heartland officials are still calling on the governor to veto the bill, which has received worldwide attention.

"When people say it's unconstitutional, they're saying it should be OK to kill a human being", said state Rep. Dean Fisher, R-Montour, who supports the bill.

"This legislation affirms the scientific fact that human life begins at conception", the American Family Association, a pro-life Christian group in MS, said in a statement.
