The pro-life Republican said she wants every Iowan to have the opportunity to succeed, including babies in the womb, CBC Online reports. She urged lawmakers to pass a state constitutional amendment that makes it clear there is no “right to abortion” in Iowa.
“We must protect life by making it clear through an amendment that our constitution does not grant a right to abortion,” Reynolds said, KCRG News 9 reports.
