Iowa House bill changes funding for abortions

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

On Wednesday, the Iowa House approved a bill that calls for new restrictions on the way tax dollars are used to pay for abortions.

The bill bans public funding of abortions except for in the case where the mother's life is in danger.

The current law allows for taxpayer-funded abortions in the case of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.

The House voted in favor of the bill with a 57-37 vote.

The bill moves on to the Senate.
