Iowa Lawmakers Vote For Strictest Abortion Law In United States.

The Iowa legislature voted late Tuesday to advance a bill to ban abortion after six weeks — in what would become the most restrictive abortion law in the United States.

Six weeks into a woman’s pregnancy is the point at which doctors typically can detect the flicker of a fetal heartbeat on an ultrasound. It’s also the point after which Iowa lawmakers now intend to outlaw abortions.

The Iowa Legislature approved what would be the nation’s strictest abortion law in an early-morning vote on Wednesday. The move intended to pose an aggressive challenge to Roe v. Wade and reignite conservative energy before the midterm elections in November.

The Iowa House narrowly approved the controversial bill 51-46, and the Senate passed it by a vote of 29-17.

But what if some one gets pregnant and didn’t find out until after six weeks?
