How to resurrect the sanctity of life in Iowa
Governor Kim Reynolds will not appeal a recent court decision which shot down the Heartbeat Bill.
The Governor made a tough call. The appeal process had almost no chance to succeed in light or the Iowa Supreme Court’s brazen support of abortion last year.
And since Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit against the Heartbeat Bill asserted the law only violated the Iowa Constitution and not the Roe v Wade decision itself, the decision cannot be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
So what do we do? Iowans for LIFE has a plan on how to resurrect the sanctity of life in Iowa, so keep reading. The plan only succeeds with your help.
There is no silver bullet. Rather, there is a longterm campaign that requires unity and collaboration:
ATTEND THE IOWA RALLY FOR LIFE THIS THURSDAY
Pro-lifers thrive on prayer and unity. That’s what the Iowa Rally for Life is all about. Let’s come together in the rotunda at the Capitol and pray on behalf of the sanctity of human life in Iowa.
Governor Kim Reynolds will speak at around 11:45 to noon. (Please note, this is a change in schedule, as the Governor was originally going to speak at 11AM).
We know there’s going to be snow on the ground, but the movement needs YOU to be at the Capitol THIS Thursday.
AMEND THE IOWA CONSTITUTION
Our unelected Supreme Court somehow, someway found a ‘right to human abortion’ hidden within the recesses of our Constitution. Their reasoning was skewed by politics.
The solution is a simple amendment to the Constitution as follows:
“No right to abortion or required funding of abortion: The Constitution of the State of Iowa does not secure or protect a right to abortion or require the funding of abortion.”
The Iowa Constitution has been amended many times. It needs to pass two consecutive legislative sessions, and then the people of Iowa get to vote on it.
IFL is working in the trenches on this project along with the rest of our friends in the Iowa Coalition of Pro Life Leaders.
PRO LIFE BILLBOARDS
Iowans for LIFE is coordinating a billboard campaign with coalition members to counter Planned Parenthood’s obscene campaign which seeks to normalize human abortion.
MARCH FOR LIFE
Ultimately, we know that the best way to resurrect the sanctity of life in Iowa is through our youth. That’s why IFL continues to take our youth to the March for Life each year by the busload. Even more, we’re creating a documentary of this year’s March as a recruiting tool for next year’s March. Watch a clip above.
Iowans for LIFE thinks outside the box and engages our community in provocative new ways, such as A CLASH OF CREEDS, a theatrical piece. Watch the trailer above.
A CLASH OF CREEDS features a conversation between three iconic women from the 20th century, including Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger; Ayn Rand, author of Atlas Shrugged; and St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta. The conversation is moderated by the great English thinker, GK Chesterton.
The play is an intellectual tour de force of the ideas that molded America, for better and for worse. Four performances remain, including three this weekend.
So how do we resurrect the sanctity of life in Iowa? Through a blend of politics, prayer, marketing, and intellectual enlightenment.
Join the campaign, beginning with this Thursday’s Iowa Rally for Life.
