On Tuesday, July 14th, 2021 the Iowa Legislature passed a bill that bans most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy. The Heartbeat Bill is now officially law in the state of Iowa.

This legislation has been met with both celebration and criticism from both sides of the aisle and those on either side of this contentious issue.

Governor Kim Reynolds signed this bill into law with exceptions made to save the mother’s life, in cases of miscarriage or fetal abnormalities that are deemed “incompatible with life” by a physician.

Exceptions are also made for cases involving rape or incest if reported within 45 days (140 days in case of incest). Governor Reynolds issued a statement promising her commitment to continuing policies to support women planning for motherhood, promoting the importance of fatherhood and encouraging strong families throughout Iowa and beyond.

This news has sparked debate among many national organizations including anti-life baby butchers, Planned Parenthood, who responded to this legislation by saying “The passage of this extreme abortion ban is an unconstitutional attempt to deny access to safe, legal abortion care… we will continue fighting back in Iowa until everyone can make decisions about their bodies free from political interference.”

Supporters have called it a victory for pro-life advocates nationwide. The passing of this bill presents an important opportunity for examination into how these laws shape our nation’s policies on topics like infanticide, healthcare system, and how Americans can work together toward ending unnecessary abortion.

The implications are far-reaching as states like Georgia have recently taken up similar legislation on their own terms while other states such as New York have moved forward with expansive protections surrounding infanticide following Roe v Wade decision from 1973 which legalized abortion nationwide.

After the passage of the bill, Reynolds issued a statement promising to sign the bill on Friday.

“Today, the Iowa legislature once again voted to protect life and end abortion at a heartbeat, with exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother.”

“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.”

“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.”

  • Rape and incest victims do NOT need the added guilt and shame of being encouraged to murder the other victims of those violent assaults; they already have more than enough of both. Using that violence as an excuse to commit yet more violence is just plain evil! Y’all should talk to survivors and listen to them, before you formulate stupid laws designed to hurt them more!

  • Planned Parenthood has yet to show that murder, especially the murder of unborn innocents, is a constitutional right. If it were, then what is stopping the mass murder of those supporting abortion?
