FIFTY-FIVE MEMBERS OF THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY IN THE IOWA HOUSE HAVE ENDORSED A PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE STATE CONSTITUTION ON ABORTION.

IF EVENTUALLY APPROVED BY VOTERS, IOWA’S CONSTITUTION WOULD BE AMENDED TO SAY IT DOES NOT RECOGNIZE, GRANT OR SECURE A RIGHT TO ABORTION.

REPRESENTATIVE STEVEN HOLT OF DENISON, SAYS IT’S NEEDED TO RESPOND TO COURT RULINGS THAT STRUCK DOWN ABORTION RESTRICTIONS.

AB1 OC….ONE OF THEM :09

DEMOCRATS LIKE REPRESENTATIVE CHRISTINA BOHANNAN OF IOWA CITY SAY THE AMENDMENT COULD LEAD TO AN ABORTION BAN IN IOWA IF THE U.S. SUPREME COURT’S NEW CONSERVATIVE MAJORITY SENDS THE ISSUE BACK TO THE STATES.

AB2 OC….BORN FEMALE :12

REPRESENTATIVE HOLT DESCRIBES THE PROPOSAL AS “ABORTION NEUTRAL.”

AB3 OC….FEDERAL LAW :14

REPRESENTATIVE MOLLY DONAHUE, A DEMOCRAT FROM CEDAR RAPIDS, CALLS THAT MISLEADING.

ABO4 OC….OF THIS BILL :09

ALL THE DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE AND THREE REPUBLICANS VOTED AGAINST THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT.

REPUBLICAN LEADERS IN THE IOWA SENATE PLAN TO ENDORSE THE AMENDMENT THIS YEAR, AS THEY DID IN 2020.
