Gov. Reynolds released the following statement in response to a brief filed today with the Iowa Supreme Court seeking to uphold the Fetal Heartbeat Law:Β Β 

β€œThe people of Iowa and their elected representatives have spoken clearly and by a wider margin than before: it’s time for the Fetal Heartbeat Law to be upheld once and for all. The injunction placed on Iowa’s Fetal Heartbeat Law has already led to the innocent deaths of children. It needs to end. Every life is valuable and worth our state's protection – no matter what stage of life they are in.”
