Democrat State Rep. Molly Donahue (D-Linn) acknowledged from the floor of the Iowa House that the word abortion is not in the Iowa Constitution as it is now.

Donahue spoke against the proposed constitutional amendment which would simply say there is no constitutional right to an abortion or taxpayer funding of abortion in the state of Iowa.

Donahue’s admission that the word abortion is nowhere in the current Iowa Constitution begs one question…

If the word abortion doesn’t appear in Iowa’s Constitution, how can there be a constitutional right to an abortion?

That’s what the Iowa Supreme Court found a couple of years ago. Well, they didn’t really “find” it, they made it up.
