Des Moines, IA - Polk County District Judge Jeffrey Farrell ruled today that the Iowa Board of Medicine was acting within its proper authority when it banned the use of Planned Parenthood's experimental "Webcam" abortion pill distribution process.

This ruling will allow the implementation and enforcement of the webcam abortion ban in 30 days.

Planned Parenthood has said it will appeal today's ruling.

"Operation Rescue has worked with other state and national pro-life groups since 2010 to bring an end to this dangerous abortion pill distribution racket that puts Planned Parenthood profits above the lives and health of women," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. "Today represents a long awaited victory for women and their babies."
