Quad-City Times/Associated Press: Iowa lawmakers have passed what could be the most restrictive abortion legislation in the country. Republican lawmakers with control of the Statehouse passed the so-called “heartbeat” bill early today, with back-to-back chamber votes along party lines. The legislation would effectively ban most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, with exemptions for cases of rape and incest. Critics say that would ban the medical procedure before some women know they’re pregnant. Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds hasn’t indicated whether she’ll sign the bill into law.
