Iowa Passes Bill Banning Abortions And Defining Unborn As Human Beings

An Iowa bill that would recognize unborn babies as people with human rights, and would protect them from abortion passed a state Senate committee on Monday, according to LifeNews. 

“A large and vocal crowd” attended the hearing on Monday to voice their support and opposition to the measure. The committee gave its initial approval of the bill, moving it to another Senate committee for consideration. 

“The sovereign state of Iowa recognizes that life is valued and protected from the moment of conception,” the bill declares. Pro-life lawyer Rebecca Keissling was one of several pro-lifers who spoke up in support of the bill.

“You’re providing the framework to recognize that the unborn child is a person and also to have a public policy that prefers childbirth over abortion,” Keissling said.
