Contributing sentiments towards policy:

52% : The ruling Monday does specify that while the law is temporarily paused, the state's Board of Medicine should proceed with creating rules for enforcement, as the law specifies.
45% : That means abortion is once again legal in Iowa up to 20 weeks of pregnancy while the courts assess the new law's constitutionality.
44% : There are limited circumstances under the law that would allow for abortion after the point in a pregnancy where cardiac activity is detected: rape, if reported to law enforcement or a health provider within 45 days; incest, if reported within 145 days; if the fetus has a fetal abnormality "incompatible with life;" or if the pregnancy is endangering the life of the pregnant woman.
42% : Seidlin specified that his ruling today hinges on the "undue burden" test, which is an intermediate level of scrutiny that requires laws do not create a significant obstacle to abortion.
