Iowa Is Set to Ban Abortions after State Court Strikes Down the Right to the Procedure


On Friday, Iowa’s Supreme Court ruled that the state’s constitution does not protect the fundamental right to an abortion, overturning a previous ruling that enshrined the right to the procedure, allowing new restrictions to take effect.

The ruling likely clears the way for the state to restrict further or completely ban abortions should the U.S. Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade.

The Iowa Supreme Court ruled in 2018 that the state constitution protects abortion. However, the court overruled that decision on Friday, holding that the state constitution “is not the source of a fundamental right to an abortion.”
