Case No. 21-0856

Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, Inc., and Jill Meadows, M.D.
v.
Kim Reynolds ex rel. State of Iowa and Iowa Board of Medicine

Respondents appeal from a district court order granting petitioners’ motion for summary judgment and permanently enjoining implementation and enforcement of Amendment H-8314 to House File 594, 88th General Assembly (Iowa 2020), codified at Iowa Code section 146.1(1)(2020). Respondents contend the court erred by finding the legislation, which imposes certain requirements for women seeking an abortion, including a 24-hour waiting period, was enacted in violation of the single-subject rule of the Iowa Constitution, and by finding respondents were precluded from defending the statute from petitioners’ constitutional challenges by the decision in Planned Parenthood of the Heartland v. Reynolds ex rel. State, 915 N.W.2d 206 (Iowa 2018) (holding statutory 72-hour waiting period violated equal protection and due process provisions of the Iowa Constitution).
