Pro-lifers: Bring on lawsuit over human lives

Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a bill last Friday that bans abortion after a baby's heartbeat is detected. That's at or around six weeks, marking the strictest abortion regulation in the nation.

It also sets the state up for a lengthy court fight.

Maggie DeWitte, executive director of Iowans for Life, says it's an "almost certainty" that a court fight is coming but pro-lifers welcome it in order to challenge Roe v. Wade in a court of law.

"We're fully expecting any day now," she tells OneNewsNow, "for the Planned Parenthood of the Heartland and the ACLU, and other pro-abortion entities, to file an injunction to halt the legislation and work its way through the court system."

Last year, Iowa passed a ban on abortion after 20 weeks that and pro-lifers later got behind the "heartbeat bill" that is now state law.  

"This is a human rights issue," DeWitte says. "These are living, human beings with their own unique DNA, with their own unique heartbeat, and they deserve protection just like everyone else."
