GOP Will Renew Effort to Ban Iowa Abortion Funding

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Republican lawmakers say they're going to try again to ban the rare use of public money to finance abortions for low-income women.

Missouri Valley Rep. Matt Windschitl says he and other House Republicans are holding preliminary talks on a proposal to prevent Medicaid reimbursement for any abortions. Last fiscal year, the state reimbursed 22 abortions at a cost of $19,402.

State and federal laws now limit abortion funding to low-income women who are rape or incest victims, whose lives will be in danger if they don't get an abortion, or whose fetuses face severe deformities.

A similar effort delayed Iowa lawmakers during the end of last legislative session, as Republicans tried to push a rule banning government-funded abortions. Republicans finally gave up the effort under pressure to end the session.
