Judge agrees to halt fe­tal heart­beat abor­tion law in Iowa

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

An Iowa judge agreed Fri­day to tem­po­rar­ily block the most re­stric­tive abor­tion law in the coun­try un­der an agree­ment be­tween the state and abor­tion rights groups.

The law bans most abor­tions if a fe­tal heart­beat can be de­tected, which abor­tion rights groups say is un­con­sti­tu­tional. An at­tor­ney for the state said Fri­day that the goal now is to quickly get the case be­fore a judge.
