Abortion bill halts in the Iowa Senate

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

 An Iowa House bill restricting abortion funding did not pass the State Senate Thursday.

The Iowa house bill would have ended state funded abortions in cases of rape or incest.  The only exception would be if the mother's life was in danger.

The vote was defeated on a 25-to-25 vote.

The funding measure will go to a conference committee.
