Iowa Personhood Amendment (2010)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |

The measure was being proposed by Alons because he argued that life begins at conception and should be preserved "from the very beginning of the biological process."
Path to the ballot
A majority vote was required (in two successive sessions of) the Iowa General Assembly to place a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment on the ballot. Iowa is one of 11 states that requires this process. Legislative session concluded without the measure being sent to the ballot.
