Two conflicting reports on the status of HF 153 authored by State Representative Kim Pearson (R-Pleasant Hill).  It passed out of its subcommittee, but hasn’t moved out of the House Human Resources Committee.

Jennifer Jacobs at The Des Moines Register declared it dead since it didn’t make it out during funnel week.  However, Pearson and other prolife legislators said that it will move forward next week in a different form.  It will likely go the same road as HF 5, the late term abortion ban which Speaker Kraig Paulsen (R-Hiawatha) moved to the Government Oversight Committee which is funnel proof.

The rumors of HF 153’s death seem to be greatly exaggerated.  I’ve said before that I would like HF 5 to be codified along with HF 153.  We’ll see where they both go from here even if they pass the House since it seems like the Iowa Senate doesn’t want to debate or vote on anything this year.
