State lawmakers in Iowa have crushed the ever so heartless souls of the radical left this week by passing a new heartbeat bill that will ban the vast majority of abortions when a pre-born child’s heartbeat is able to be detected, which usually happens around the sixth week of pregnancy. This is absolutely awesome news. However, I want to state that this still leaves a whole lot of unborn children unprotected. We need to be seeking the abolition of this horrific practice, though this is a definite step in the right direction.
According to a report from the Daily Wire, “The bill was passed after Republican Governor Kim Reynolds called a special session to address abortion after the Iowa Supreme Court blocked the state’s 2018 Heartbeat Act last month. Reynold’s said she would sign the bill on Friday. “
“The Iowa Supreme Court questioned whether this legislature would pass the same law they did in 2018, and today they have a clear answer. The voices of Iowans and their democratically elected representatives cannot be ignored any longer, and justice for the unborn should not be delayed,” the governor explained in a statement.
The new legislation does feature several exceptions for abortion, including cases of both rape or incest. Again, many conservatives will disagree with having such a provision included in the bill, but this is a step in the right direction. As culture continues to change and swing back away from radical leftism, we’ll be able to amend these things or pass new laws that will eventually do away with the practice altogether.
“As a pro-life Governor, I am also committed to continuing policies to support women in planning for motherhood, promote the importance of fatherhood, and encourage strong families. Our state and country will be stronger because of it,” Reynolds remarked.
The bill ended up passing by a vote of 56-34 in the House and 32-17 in the Senate. The legislation had wide support from Republicans and was, unsurprisingly, opposed by Democrats, who, for whatever reason, have a sick and twisted love affair with the murder of pre-born children.
“This bill ensures all life is protected when a heartbeat is detected,” Republican state Sen. Amy Sinclair commented during a conversation on the bill, according to the Iowa Capital Dispatch. “The child in her mother’s womb has her own heartbeat, her own DNA. She’s a baby, and she deserves the same protections as any other baby in the state.”

While the bill was being voted on, there was some very heated debate going on, as well as protests inside the Capitol.
“Senator Sinclair, don’t pi** down my back and tell me it’s raining,” Democratic Senator Liz Bennett stated in an absolutely beautiful display of class, which then led to presiding Senator Brad Zaun to call for decorum. Something tells me that word isn’t in Bennett’s vocabulary.
Rabid pro-abortion protesters arrived en masse, launching angry chants and yelling at state lawmakers.

“Another video captured from the Capitol showed a verbal confrontation between Michael Shover, a pastor at a church in Pella, Iowa, who said the pro-abortion protesters ‘have no standard of right and wrong.’ A state trooper intervened as a woman who supports abortion rights waved a sign in Shover’s face,” the Daily Wire reported in conclusion.
