Iowa Takes on New York, Bans Most Abortions

By

Conservatives, Christians and anyone who’s opposed to ending a human being’s life before he or she even has a chance to draw their first breath were cheering on Friday.

That’s when Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed into law the so-called “Heartbeat” bill banning most abortions in her state.

The bill forbids any abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, arguing that at that point, it is indisputable that what’s growing inside a woman is another human being.

In signing the bill, Reynolds reminded everyone of the obvious:

“…if death is determined when a heart stops beating, then doesn’t a beating heart indicate life? For me, it is immoral to stop an innocent beating heart.”

Fetal heartbeats can typically be detected already at the sixth week or pregnancy, making Iowa’s new abortion law one of the most restrictive in the nation.

However, it does provide exceptions for cases of rape, incest or medical emergency, which are what most liberals like to fling around when advocating abortion, even though such cases are only very rarely the motivation for seeking an abortion.

Still, the bill does legally provide such exceptions, so liberals should be OK with it, right?

Well, you know as well as I do that they aren’t. Iowa’s new legislation is being lambasted as “controversial” by those who prefer New York’s new approach of letting women kill their babies right up until the moment before birth.
