The Iowa Standard has contacted each Republican legislator in the Iowa House asking if they support the abortion neutrality amendment. The proposed amendment needs to pass two general assemblies of the Iowa Legislature and then survive a vote of the people.

It doesn’t restrict any abortions at all, it simply says the Iowa Constitution does not provide a right to an abortion or taxpayer funding of abortion.

The following lists will be updated as we hear back from legislators or find public comments that indicate support for the amendment.

The following state legislators have expressed support for the bill by either offering public comments or by sponsoring the legislation: (23/53)
