On Tuesday, July 11th, Iowa House Republicans passed House File 732 to protect the lives of unborn children. 

HF 732 restricts abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected by an abdominal ultrasound unless there is a medical emergency or the pregnancy is the result of rape and incest. 

Representative Shannon Lundgren (R-Peosta) led the bill through the Iowa House. 

"This bill protects unborn children in Iowa," said Lundgren.  "This bill sets a clear standard where the state has an interest in the life of a child – when the baby’s heart starts beating. Where there is a heartbeat – there is life."

Speaker Pat Grassley (R- New Hartford) said the bill is another promise kept to Iowans.

"Iowans know we are a pro-life caucus and they have continued to grow our majority," said Grassley.  "While Democrats across the country continue to devalue the life of an unborn child, Iowa House Republicans are following through on our promise to protect life."

HF 732 passed the Iowa House with a vote of 56-34.
