A bill that would ban abortions in Iowa passed a House human-resources subcommittee Monday, according to the Associated Press.

The bill “recognizes that life is valued and protected from the moment of conception and each life is accorded the same rights and 15 protections guaranteed to all persons by the Constitutions of the state of Iowa and the United States, and by the laws of the state.”

Additionally, the bill states the Iowa Supreme Court does not have appellate jurisdiction of the provisions of the bill.

The bill would take effect upon enactment. The bill will now head to the full House Human Resources Committee for a vote, the AP reported.
