Terry Branstad on Abortion

 

 


Signed law making abortion illegal at 20 weeks

SF471: A bill for an act relating to feticide, making penalties applicable, and including effective date provisions.

Des Moines Register analysis, 3/22/17: SF471 says any person who intentionally terminates a pregnancy that has reached 20 weeks post-fertilization commits a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. The bill allows exceptions to preserve the life of the mother or the fetus, or to avert a "serious risk" to the pregnant woman of "substantial and irreversible physical impairment of a bodily function." It also allows exceptions for fetal abnormalities where a child could not survive outside the womb. "Putting these criminal penalties on here puts a woman's life at risk immediately, because trying to save a woman's life now potentially makes a doctor a criminal," said Rep. Beth Woessel-Kroeschell, D-Ames.

Legislative Outcome: Passed House 55-43-3 on Apr/5/17; Passed Senate 30-20-0 on Apr/20/17; Signed by Gov. Branstad on May/5/17
