Des Moines Register:

A Polk County District Court judge denied a request Thursday for an emergency order aimed at blocking state officials from enforcing a new law that will require a 72-hour waiting period for abortions at any stage of pregnancy.

The temporary injunction was sought by Planned Parenthood of the Heartland before Judge Jeffrey Farrell in Des Moines. Gov. Terry Branstad is scheduled to sign Senate File 471 at 8:30 a.m. Friday and the abortion restrictions are set to take effect immediately.
