DES MOINES, Iowa (KCRG) - A constitutional amendment denying a woman’s right to an abortion in Iowa is one step closer to reality.

The State Senate passed the amendment in a 30 to 18 vote on Wednesday after the House passed it in January.

The amendment will still need approval in a separately-elected legislature and a public vote before the constitution changes.
