Iowa Senate Passes Law To Stop One Doctor From Opening Abortion Clinic
Dr. Leroy Carhart wanted to open in Council Bluffs
But the measure passed by the Democratic-led Iowa Senate on Monday in a 26-23 vote would require Carhart and others to apply to the state for a “certificate of need” or permit for a “free-standing” abortion clinic.
It would also require the clinic be located near a hospital with a neonatal unit for premature babies.
And guess what? No such hospital exists near where Carhart wants to open.Click here for reuse options!
