Iowa Lawmaker Seeks to Define Abortion as Murder

Iowa State Rep. Rob Bacon (R) and eight of his colleagues introduced legislation to alter the definition of a person in murder cases to "an individual human being, without regard to age of development, from the moment of conception, when a zygote is formed, until natural death," the Ames Tribune reports.

"Those charged with murder, under the bill, would include a mother who takes abortion-inducing drugs or a doctor who performs an abortion. It also grants no exceptions for rape, incest or to protect the life of the mother."

2. Will the mother or the doctor go to jail for murder? Or both?

4. They'll both get the death penalty, presumably.

3. These "pro life" scumbags are the worst excuses for human beings in this country.

They really don't care if they take us back to the stone ages.
