Iowa lawmakers pass new abortion ban

Listen in on this Morning Joe conversation with Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, and Mike Barnicle as they discuss the Republican Party’s continued attack on reproductive rights after Iowa’s state legislature voted to ban most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy—despite the majority of Iowans believing abortion should be legal in most or all cases, according to a recent Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll. “We are talking once again about one of the more pivotal moments in public life for everyone: Whether or not a woman has an abortion. It’s been going on for decades, and it continues, and it’s incredible that one political party in many states continues to go back at it in terms of offending—offending women by taking the government and putting them not only into their bedrooms but into their doctor’s offices.” says Barnicle.
