Iowa lawmakers have tried to pass pro-life laws, but the judicial branch continually rules them unconstitutional. It is a battle that has left the GOP with little appetite for even having the debate in the legislature.

Republicans seem to be in a holding pattern when it comes to pro-life legislation — at least until Iowans vote on the Life Amendment.

But that will not happen until 2024 — at the earliest — due to the Iowa House of Representatives’ absolute failure to pass the amendment in 2020.

Still, the conservative base wants human life protected and defended.

There are some pro-life bills still floating around the chambers. But nothing close to a bill that would truly abolish abortion.

Sheryl wants to see the RINOs voted out and a Heartbeat bill that stands. The former Heartbeat bill was thrown out by a judge and the decision was not appealed by Gov. Kim Reynolds to the Iowa Supreme Court.

Paul also called for banning abortions, while legalizing marijuana.

Karen put passing the Life Amendment on her list.

There seems to be a stalemate on the issue, but Iowans can rest assured that there are some lawmakers who will continue the fight.

The question is, how far are they willing to go when it comes to confronting a hostile judiciary.

Of course, Iowa has a new Supreme Court for the most part. So perhaps the state should get something sent in an effort to see how “conservative” — or better, constitutional — this court is when it comes to the Life issue.
