Iowa court clears way for telemedicine abortions

Via The Washington Times:

An Iowa rule blocking “webcam” abortions has been struck down as unconstitutional by the state’s highest court.

Requiring an in-person physical exam of the woman by a doctor before the early abortion put an “undue burden” on the woman, the Iowa Supreme Court said in a ruling released Friday.

The court’s ruling was a victory for Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, which opposed an administrative rule by the Iowa Board of Medicine.
