And Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa have sued to block Iowa from implementing the harshest anti-abortion law in the nation. The disqualification is based on the Attorney General's determination that he could not zealously assert the state's position because of his core belief that the statute, if upheld, would undermine rights and protections for women.
Pro-life advocates are calling on President Donald Trump to use regulations to rollback taxpayer subsidies to Planned Parenthood.
The lawsuit names Gov. Kim Reynolds and the Iowa Board of Medicine as defendants, Bettis said.
"Reinstating President Ronald Reagan's Title X regulations is sorely needed to bring the program into clear alignment with the statutory requirement stating, 'None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.' Abortion is not family planning and the law recognizes that", read the letter.
The law is partially meant to serve as the starting point to a challenge of the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade, which established the constitutional right of women to get an abortion.

Other plaintiffs include Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, the affiliate's medical director and the Emma Goldman Clinic in Iowa City.
The Iowa law is the latest to test the legality of abortion restrictions.
"It's a law that has been passed by politicians who are out of touch with the reality of women's lives", Thompson said.
"We're pleased with the promises President Trump has upheld, but we also need Congress to stay on top of this", Students for Life president Kristan Hawkins said. "This law must be struck down". "Getting a win on the pro-life side, even if it's regulatory rather than legislative, would be huge, and encourage people to come out and vote for the members who pushed for action on this", Kelly Marcum, who provides legislative advice for the evangelical-based Family Research Council, told The Hill. The Iowa Supreme Court eventually ruled the law unconstitutional.
