Iowa GOP thinks parents should have the right to control adult daughters bodies



Time to shove a goddamn C note in the swear jar.




An anti-abortion bill being offered by Republicans in Iowa would effectively ban all abortions and give parents rights over the bodies of unmarried adult daughters.

A state House panel on Wednesday voted to send SF 471 — the so-called “personhood” bill — to the full committee. The bill states that life begins at conception, giving fetuses the same rights as people.

Anticipating that the “personhood” provision of the bill will likely be struck down by courts, the GOP bill also provides criminal punishment for anyone who performs an abortion more than 20 weeks after conception. The bill makes exceptions if the life of the mother is at risk. However, it does not make exceptions for rape or incest.


This irritates me. What the fuck is next, Iowa? Making unmarried adult daughters seek permission from their nearest male relatives to drive or seek employment outside the home?

2. You cannot tell me that most Iowans support this.

Among other things, it would never pass Constitutional muster, but I honestly do not believe Iowans would go for this. Everyone I've ever met from Iowa has been not only nice, but actually on the liberal side.

8. My Rep is the one who thinks it's a grand idea to make women carry non viable feutuses to term

 

I think when I next go up to Minnesota I'm going to check out places to live up there. I'm not sure I want to live in Iowa anymore if this is the quality of person the people put in the House.

An Iowa state representative has caused a furor online by asserting that women who miscarry after 20 weeks of pregnancy should have to carry their fetuses to term.

Shannon Lundgren’s comments came during a hearing this week on Senate File 471, which would pave the way for a state ban on abortions after the 20-week mark. The Iowa House Human Resources Committee approved the legislation after a “fetal heartbeat bill” that would have banned abortion any time after a heartbeat is detected—as early as six weeks of pregnancy—was scrapped. The legislation is now under consideration by the Iowa House, and if it becomes law Iowa would be the 18th U.S. state to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Lundgren, the manager of Senate File 471, represents rural Dubuque and ran for office on an anti-abortion platform. She was asked by state Representative John Forbes if under the proposal his daughter, who is currently 20 weeks pregnant, would have to carry her child to term even if a doctor told her that there was no longer a heartbeat. “Is that good medicine?” asked Forbes.
