An Iowa court has suspended a ban on telemedicine abortions, the controversial method that allows doctors and patients to tele-conference when administering the abortion drug.
The process allows the doctor and patient to never have to be in the same room.
Supporters say it provides women in rural areas health care access, but opponents of web-cam abortions say it's unsafe.
"Because when you go to a doctor and you have questions, yes, they say that they have someone on call for that. I receive phone calls on a regular basis complaining of bleeding and they don't know if it's too much pain, just different side effects from the abortion," Kelly Larson, a registered nurse, said.
The Iowa Board of Medicine approved a ban of telemedicine this summer.
It was supposed to go into effect last week, but Planned Parenthood is taking legal action against the decision. A district judge also ruled to suspend the ban pending that challenge.
