The ACLU of Iowa and Planned Parenthood on behalf of Dr. Jill Medows and the Emily Goldman Clinic of Iowa City filed that lawsuit Tuesday.
She added: "I understand and anticipate that this will likely be challenged in court, and that courts may even put a hold on the law until it reaches the Supreme Court".
Nearly immediately after the lawsuit was filed, the state's attorney general said he would not defend the new law.
Iowa Republicans vowed to pass what is considered the toughest abortion limit in the nation with the hope that it would be the one that gives the U.S. Supreme Court another opportunity to reverse the 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade.
A lawsuit asking the court to block Iowa's newest abortion law has officially been filed.
Gov. Kim Reynolds signed the bill into law earlier this month. Pro-abortion rights advocates say those who don't have the resources to leave Iowa will be forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term, or in some cases will attempt to self-induce, a sometimes-dangerous act.
"We haven't heard much out of Iowa until the past couple of years", said state policy analyst Elizabeth Nash of the Guttmacher Institute, a national research group that supports abortion rights and tracks abortion legislation. "With it, Iowa politicians have tried to ban virtually all abortions for women in our state".
Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, a Democrat, previously indicated his office would disqualify itself and not represent the state in defense of the "heartbeat" law if a legal challenge was filed.
Iowa Republicans previous year also gave up millions in federal dollars to create a state-funded family planning program that prohibits participation from abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood.
Exceptions include cases of medical necessity in a physician's judgment, rape that is reported within 45 days, incest reported within 140 days, or where a physician certifies a fetal abnormality that is "incompatible with life".
Francine Thompson, co-director of the Emma Goldman Clinic in Iowa City, said the cut-off period of six weeks doesn't work. "It's also important to note that the exceptions in the law are essentially non-exceptions".
Lawmakers adopted several abortion restrictions in 2017, including a 20-week abortion ban and a requirement that women wait three days before ending a pregnancy.
