21 dumbasses want extreme anti-abortion measure written into the Iowa constitution

Ugh.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Twenty-one Iowa senators have signed a resolution that if approved would make abortion illegal in the state, but even a key supporter says it likely won't get a vote.

Republican Sen. Dennis Guth of Klemme says Friday the resolution he sponsored would make abortion illegal by amending the state constitution to define life as beginning at conception.

Although one Democrat joined with 20 Republicans in signing the resolution submitted Thursday, Guth says it likely won't come up for a vote in the Senate, where Democrats hold a majority.

To become law, two Legislatures elected in separate, consecutive elections would need to approve the measure, which then would go to voters.


Take care of the people's business? Hell no. Do stupid stuff like this so they can prove what big time pro life people they are.
