(Worthy News) - The Iowa State Legislature passed legislation on Wednesday aimed at banning abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected.
If Gov. Kim Reynolds (R.) signs the "heartbeat bill" into law, it will almost definitely spark legal challenges from abortion supporters who find it too restricting, the Associated Press reports.
The bill is currently on the way to the governor's desk, and many expect her to sign it. Reynolds hasn't spoken about the bill, but her press secretary said the governor "is 100 percent pro-life and will never stop fighting for the unborn." [ Source: Washington Free Beacon (Read More...) ]
