Republicans in the legislature are prioritizing a process that would override an Iowa Supreme Court ruling that Iowa women have a right to abortion.
A proposed amendment to Iowa’s constitution cleared its first hurdle in the House early this morning. Iowans for Life executive director Maggie DeWitte thanked GOP lawmakers for bringing it forward so quickly in the 2021 session.
“I believe the people of Iowa and not unelected judges of the state Supreme Court should decide how Iowa regulates abortion,” DeWitte said.
