Governor Branstad is unhappy with a U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down a Texas abortion law.
The case dealt with the same issues the Iowa Supreme Court considered when it upheld Iowa’s telemed abortion program.
The Texas law required abortion clinics to be near hospitals, so doctors performing abortions can admit patients if there are complications.
It also required abortion clinics to meet certain building, equipment and staffing regulations.
Branstad says states should be able to protect the wellbeing of their citizens.
