DES MOINES – Republicans in the Iowa in the House of Representatives introduced a bill Wednesday outlawing abortions. Doctors who perform abortions could be prosecuted if the law is enacted.

The bill defines human life as beginning “from the moment of conception, when the zygote is formed, until natural death.”

The bill provides that murder includes killing another person through any means that terminates the life of the other person including but not limited to the use of abortion-inducing drugs, and defines “abortion-inducing drug.”

The bill also provides that murder does not include a fetal death or the spontaneous termination of pregnancy as defined in Iowa law.

The bill amends Iowa code relating to discrimination relating to health insurance abortion coverage by eliminating the reference to abortion coverage.

The House is controlled by Republicans, while the Senate is controlled by Democrats.
