Judge allows abortion waiting period to stand

A Polk County judge says he sees no legal problems with requiring women to wait three days before getting an abortion.  Judge Jeffrey Farrellsays a waiting period may be strict, but is not illegal.  That's just one part of the law that doesn't allow women to get an abortion after 20 weeks unless the mother's life is in danger. The Iowa Supreme Court is likely to hear the case brought by Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.  Meanwhile, a temporary injunction is in place, which stops the waiting period until the case is decided.
