Kudoes to Representatives SHAW, HEARTSILL, ALONS, SCHULTZ, BACON, SHEETS, KOESTER, FRY, and SALMON. This is where the battle lines should have been drawn all along.
A person’s a person, no matter how small.
This is the fruit of our Constitution. It is self-correcting. God bless Federalism.
Iowa constantly amazes me. Their politics are all OVER the map!
Of course I agree with this, but they sure did their best to give us 0bama, too! *Scratches Head*
My nephew is alive today because my sister had a life-saving abortion in 1987.
So will a pregnant woman have the right to kill in self-defense under this law?
Aren’t the Dems and their President saying “If it saves JUST ONE LIFE?”
Oh...sorry. I guess that only applies to evil things like guns and trying to ban them.
While the bill does indeed take a bold step I hope they left a little room in the fine print for special circumstances. It would be disgusting to see an expectant mother die because a doctor’s hands were legally tied ( this happened in Ireland recently). Maybe I’m the only one who remembers thalidamide. Then there are hydro- and micro-cephalics and a range of other really dangerous fetal conditions that risk death to the mother if not dealt with when problems start. And then who will be prosecuted when a doctor creates a miscariage by prescribing meds for other conditions and they wind up not being compatible with a full term pregnancy??? It happens all the time. Absolutes never work out in spite of best intentions. I just hope these bill writers have done their homework and not created a whole new world of problems?
