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.
