Judge lifts pregnancy ban on north Iowa woman

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

 A judge has lifted his pregnancy ban on a north Iowa woman convicted of child endangerment for shaking her infant son in 2014.
   That move comes only after the Iowa Court of Appeals last month deemed the ban unconstitutional.
   The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/298b7Sl ) that Judge James Drew lifted the ban on Tuesday.
   Stephanie Fatland had appealed her child endangerment convictions and challenged her sentence of five years' probations. Among the conditions of probation was an order prohibiting her from becoming pregnant during probation.
   In May, the appeals court upheld Fatland's conviction but said Drew's no-pregnancy order violated her "fundamental right to procreation."
