20-week abortion ban gets final approval in Iowa Legislature

Most abortions in Iowa will be banned after 20 weeks under a bill that received final approval Tuesday from the Iowa Legislature.

After a heated debate, the Iowa Senate voted 30-20 to pass Senate File 471, which heads to Gov. Terry Branstad, who is expected to sign it. All the yes votes were cast by Republicans and one independent. All the no votes were made by Democrats.
