Iowa already banned abortions after 20 weeks now republicans are trying to shorten the window again.

Still no word if the female governor will sign the bill.


"Iowa is set to become the first US state to ban abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, after lawmakers approved the most restrictive ban in the country. "

"The "heartbeat" bill, as it has come to be known, requires women to have an ultrasound to screen for a foetal heartbeat before they can receive an abortion. "

There are exceptions in the bill for rape, incest and the mothers health.


www.yahoo.com...


I'm not totally against certain restrictions on abortion but 6 weeks is way early.
They also need to include something making adoption easier for the likely increase in the birth rate.
This will only make it more difficult for women seeking abortions considering they can just leave the state to have the procedure done.

Stupid, a woman's body doesn't belong to the state or the courts, it's her own body in which she is responsible to make her own decisions based on her own thoughts.

If authorities are allowed to continually keep stepping over the line, eventually there will be no more personal freedoms.

I'm not sure why so many people think a living baby is a part of the "woman's body". It's a separate person. You're the host.

This is a good bill. The "heartbeat" bill, appropriate indeed. Hope they sign it.

This is a good thing. Finally, some compassion shown for the baby! I'm against abortion, period, but maybe at 6 weeks or less they won't be able to feel it.

I think the problem is that people can't agree when the baby is considered a person.
Until that is resolved it's just going to be argued in circles.

It is not a "living baby" at 6 weeks, and the decision should still lie with the "host", not some bureaucrats who have suddenly developed some kind of wayward, misinformed conscience.

Funny. That sort of thinking is what drove the communists to enact certain policies in China that dictated how many kids people could have.

You're a good comrade.

Good luck. This won't survive a SCOTUS challenge. And you KNOW there's going to be one.

I agree. Considering the country has no moral values.

You know whats sad? When it was baby Alfie we were talking about it was mostly liberals in here defending the decision of the state to kill him.

But they dont want the state involved in their decision about killing their child..

Btw I am a her body her choice guy..

six weeks is ridiculous... but they'll just keep pushing and pushing anyway. that's half of why so many people support trump no matter what he does, they're hoping for another supreme court justice for their team so they can roll back the clock and make abortion illegal.

Grrr. This is ridiculous. Plenty of women wouldn't even know they were pregnant at 6 weeks. A percentage of pregnancies end on their own at this point with the mother not even realizing she was pregnant. What is the difference between spontaneous miscarriage and abortion at this point?

If a woman wants to have an abortion at 6 weeks 8 weeks 9 weeks, she'll find a way.

Absolutely, whatever is needed to piss off the modern delusional leftist libtard ☺️

In Chinas case, it was one sided, leaving a lop sided population, where have all the girls gone??? Course, my post was to let heartbeats continue and live, not cutting down a specific gender, ala China, or whole babies, ala US.

So you'll be willing to help pick up the slack when more babies are put up for adoption?

NO...NO...You've got it all wrong.
Think logically...

Unwanted babies are really just a mass of living cells that need to be cut out and killed...for the health of the patient.

You know...exactly like cancer.

There are tons of people who want to adopt. That's just a poor excuse.
