"In the 45 years since (Roe v. Wade), no federal or state court has upheld such a unsafe law".
It is one of many legal proceedings between Daleiden, the Center for Medical Progress and abortion activists with Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation, both of which were exposed in some of CMP's already released videos.
And Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa have sued to block Iowa from implementing the harshest anti-abortion law in the nation.
The 1973 Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade created a right to abortion - though none ever existed in the Constitution.
The abortion-rights groups declined to make the legal documents public until the court clerk filed and stamped official copies.
"Reinstating President Ronald Reagan's Title X regulations is sorely needed to bring the program into clear alignment with the statutory requirement stating, 'None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.' Abortion is not family planning and the law recognizes that", read the letter.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, center, claps after signing a six-week abortion ban bill into law during a ceremony in her formal office, May 4, 2018, in Des Moines, Iowa.
Democrats, who say the changes would restrict access to reproductive health care, are trying to push back hard against the efforts.
"The lawsuit was expected, and the growing pro-life movement isn't deterred by it", Drew Zahn, director of communications for the Family Leader organization, also said, according to the Journal. "It's long overdue that America looked at the evidence and recognized that the little child in her mother's womb ... she's a baby".
In a letter to the secretary of Iowa's Executive Council, the state solicitor general informed the council that state Attorney General Tom Miller had "disqualified himself" from representing Iowa in a lawsuit against the implementation of the so-called "heartbeat" ban.
In a statement sent to Breitbart News, Martin Cannon, Thomas More Society Special Counsel, said his organization is "honored to be called upon to defend life".
The law outlaws abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected-something that typically happens just six weeks into a pregnancy, and before many women even realize they're pregnant.
