Des Moines Register: Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds will ask a district court to reinstate Iowa’s “fetal heartbeat” law in her first action to limit abortion since the U.S. Supreme Court eliminated the constitutional right to the procedure. Reynolds, a Republican and staunch abortion opponent, signed the so-called heartbeat law in 2018, but it never took effect and was ruled unconstitutional in 2019. At the time, it would have been the most restrictive abortion law in the country, banning the procedure after about six weeks of pregnancy.
