Fetal heartbeats can be detected as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. Inside the office, Reynolds was surrounded by children from a local Christian school and other children from supporters.

"I understand and anticipate that this will likely be challenged in court", Governor Kim Reynolds said in a statement after the signing.

"Gov. Reynolds, if you sign this bill, Planned Parenthood will see you in court", Suzanna de Baca, president of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, said.

The bill signing came shortly after the Iowa affiliates of Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union warned that they would sue the governor if she signed the bill, which the Republican-controlled Legislature quickly approved in after-hours votes earlier in the week.

The law is scheduled to go into effect July 1.

The legislation has propelled the state to the front of a push among conservative statehouses jockeying to enact the nation's most restrictive regulations on the procedure.

The State of MS has banned abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, and the State of Kentucky 11. But the law remains tied up in litigation.

But the Supreme Court in 2016 rejected appeals by both North Dakota and Arkansas to preserve similar "heartbeat" laws, which had been struck down by lower courts.

Critics say the so-called "heartbeat" bill would ban abortions before some women even know they're pregnant. To be eligible for an exemption, a woman must report a rape within to law enforcement or a physician within 45 days.

Also under the law, some uses of fetal tissue is prohibited, but exceptions can be made for research. "However, this is bigger than just a law", she said in a statement.

The state legislature approved the bill Wednesday after heated debate.

Some Iowa Republican lawmakers hope that the legislation is eventually taken up by the Supreme Court as part of an effort to challenge Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion nationwide.
