GOP will renew effort to ban abortion funding
DES MOINES (AP) — House Republicans plan to try again to ban the rare use of public money to finance abortions for low-income women, lawmakers said.
Rep. Matt Windschitl, R-Missouri Valley, said he and other House Republicans are holding preliminary talks on a proposal to prevent Medicaid reimbursement for any abortions. Last fiscal year, the state reimbursed 22 abortions at a cost of $19,402.
“One dollar spent on abortion services is one dollar too much,” Windschitl said Tuesday. “We want to make sure taxpayer dollars are not being used in a morally unconscionable way.”
