Iowa passes "fetal heartbeat" bill

The Iowa Legislature has passed a bill to ban abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, usually around six weeks.

The Governor is expected to sign the bill into law (if she hasn't already).

Legislators intend this as a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade.

Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

Worms have a heartbeat, and yet these cunts don't seem to be going out of the way to help the little buggers when they end up on the sun-baked pavement.

It's just the earliest thing they can find.

Next they'll pass an "implantation" bill.
