Another Red State Passes Strict Abortion Law

Date:

Protesters flooded the Iowa State Capitol during a one-day special session. A new six-week abortion bill was passed by the Iowa State Legislature and Story County state legislator Beth Wessel-Kroeschell says the law oversteps the boundaries.

“It’s not our place to decide for someone else whether they should become a parent. Decisions about whether to end a pregnancy or not must be made personally. This legislation will kill women.”

Several protesters entered the Senate chamber, disrupted the session shouting, and were removed by Iowa State Patrol troopers. The new law will go into effect immediately after it is signed by Governor Kim Reynolds on Friday.

On the other end of the spectrum, Iowa County Republican Rep. Brad Sherman says it’s just a matter of perspective.

“I want to speak up for those unborn babies,” Sherman said.
