Case No. 17-1579

Planned Parenthood of the Heartland and Jill Meadows
v.
Kimberly K. Reynolds ex rel. State of Iowa and Iowa Board of Medicine

Petitioners, Planned Parenthood and its medical director, appeal from a district court order denying their claims for declaratory and injunctive relief. Petitioners contend the court erred by failing to find that section 1 of Senate File 471 (codified at Iowa Code section 146A.1) imposing a mandatory waiting period for abortions violates their patients’ rights under the due process and equal protection clauses of the Iowa Constitution.
