But the measure passed by the Democratic-led Iowa Senate on Monday in a 26-23 vote would require Carhart and others to apply to the state for a “certificate of need” or permit for a “free-standing” abortion clinic.

It would also require the clinic be located near a hospital with a neonatal unit for premature babies.

And guess what? No such hospital exists near where Carhart wants to open.
