Here is the some of text of this asshattery (all strike outs, and underlining [text additions] is that of the author):
Sec. 3. Section 144.29A, subsections 1 and 2, Code 2011, are amended to read as follows:Or, if you didn't quite get it:
1. A health care provider who initially identifies and diagnoses a spontaneous termination of pregnancy
or who induces a termination of pregnancyshall file with the department a report for each termination within thirty days of the occurrence. The health care provider shall make a good faith effort to obtain all of the following information that is available with respect to each termination:
2. A health insurance program provided by an employer may exclude coverage of abortion, except where the life of the mother would be endangered if the fetus were carried to term or where medical complications have arisen from an abortion.
1. Any person who intentionally terminates a human pregnancy, with the knowledge and voluntary consent of the pregnant person,
after the end of the second trimester of the pregnancywhere death of the fetus results , commits feticide.
Feticide is a class
2. Any person who attempts to intentionally terminate a human pregnancy, with the knowledge and voluntary consent of the pregnant person,
after the end of the second trimester of the pregnancywhere death of the fetus does not result , commits attempted feticide. Attempted feticide is a class “D”“B” felony.
Any person who terminates a human pregnancy, with the knowledge and voluntary consent of the pregnant person, who is not a person licensed to practice medicine and surgery or osteopathic medicine and surgery under the provisions of chapter 148 , commits a class “C” felony.For the purposes of this section, “termination of a human pregnancy” means the use of any means to terminate the pregnancy of a woman known to be pregnant with the intent other than to produce a live birth or to remove a dead fetus. “Termination of a human pregnancy ” does not include a fetal death as defined in section 144.1 or the spontaneous termination of pregnancy as defined in section 144.29A.
This section shall not apply to the termination of a human pregnancy performed by a physician licensed in this state to practice medicine or surgery or osteopathic medicine or surgery when in the best clinical judgment of the physician the termination is performed to preserve the life or health of the pregnant person or of the fetus and every reasonable medical effort not inconsistent with preserving the life of the pregnant person is made to preserve the life of a viable fetus.Section 703.1 relating to aiding and abetting and section 703.2 relating to joint criminal conduct shall apply to persons knowingly participating or concerned in the commission of feticide or attempted feticide under this section.
EXPLANATIONPRIORITIES! This GOP legislator has 'em--and they are not about the life or welfare or autonomy of the pregnant person.
This bill relates to prohibiting abortions.
The bill makes conforming changes throughout the Code to eliminate any reference to allowing abortions or terminations of pregnancy. The bill amends the termination of pregnancy reporting section (Code section 144.29A) to only include the reporting of spontaneous terminations of pregnancy.
The bill amends a Code section relating to unfair employment practices (Code section 216.6) to eliminate references to disabilities caused or contributed to by legal abortion. The bill amends a Code section relating to discrimination relating to health insurance abortion coverage (Code section 21 216.13) to eliminate the reference to abortion coverage.
The bill amends Code section 707.7 (feticide) to provide for application of the elements of the crime of feticide at any point in the pregnancy rather than only after the end of the second trimester. The bill also increases the penalty from a class “C” felony to a class “A” felony for the intentional termination of a human pregnancy with the knowledge and voluntary consent of the pregnant person when the death of the fetus results. (A class “C” felony is punishable by confinement for no more than 10 years and a fine of at least $1,000 but not more than $10,000; and a class “A” felony is punishable by confinement for life without possibility of parole). ....
