A bill introduced to the Iowa House of Representatives would ban all abortions from conception onwards. It has almost no chance — but its introduction is still disturbing for a lot of reasons.
According to the Des Moines Register, the bill "states that each life, from the moment of conception, is accorded full rights of any person under the constitution." Like the Ohio heartbeat bill, it's explicitly intended as a challenge to Roe v. Wade, which prohibits states from banning abortion before viability. The bill's author, Iowa Rep. Kim Pearson, says she hopes it goes all the way to the Supreme Court.
