Whether or not abortions are protected under Iowa’s constitution isn’t something that should be left to the decisions of the Iowa legislators or the state’s Supreme Court, Republican legislators argue.

Instead, it’s a decision that should be left in the hands of Iowa voters, advocates of a constitutional amendment on abortion rights say.

2. Go ahead and try to stop abortion. And be sure to keep out all

immigrants as well. Your children run from the state and your population continues to drop like a rock in rural areas.
Only those liberal cities will survive.

No way will they come back.
We are about this close | | to moving ourselves.

Seems like since Branstad II our state motto is "We're like Mississippi only colder."
