Pulse Life Advocates is at the state capitol, relentlessly advocating for the protection of all life in our laws.

At the state capital...

Pulse Life Advocates has been a leader in bringing forth pro-life legislation at the Iowa State Capitol.  In fact, most of the early pro-life legislation can be credited to this organization.  We are advocating for legislation during the session and providing education to our representatives to pass bills that will protect life.

2024 Second Funnel

The second legislative funnel passed this last week, and several pro-life bills made it through the committee process.  Through the next several weeks, these bills will be placed on the calendar for debate in the House and Senate.  Here is a list of the bills that survived the funnel that Pulse registered in support:

  • SF 2251 Expands Medicaid Coverage for One Year Post-Partum – passed Senate floor
  • HF2583 Expands Medicaid Coverage for One Year Post-Partum
  • SF 2252 MOMS (More Options for Maternal Support) Program- passed Senate floor
  • HF 2267 MOMS (More Options for Maternal Support) Program
  • HF 2276 Requires Zoning of Maternity Homes as Residential Property
  • HF 2617 Human Growth & Development to Include Life in the Womb

There was one bill that also survived the first funnel that Pulse was registered against:

  • HF 2584 Over-the-Counter Birth Control Without a Prescription, but this bill did NOT survive the second funnel and is therefore dead for this legislative session.
