We are coming down to the wire now in the Iowa House and they have STILL not taken a vote on what has become known as the Heartbeat Bill. This is the law that would ban all abortions once a heartbeat had been detected.
Republicans have 59 seats in the Iowa House. Life at Conception is the first plank of the Republican Party of Iowa as you can see below.
This section enumerates what we Republicans of Iowa identify as the legislative priorities and stances for our elected representatives.
- We move the Iowa Republican Party aggressively support a Life Begins at Conception Bill without exceptions. We believe that all human beings, from conception to natural death, have a God-given and constitutionally protected right to life, which cannot be infringed. We believe all such issues belong under the constitutional authority of the state, not federal, government. We oppose using public revenues for abortion or funding organizations which advocate it. We commend those who provide alternatives to abortion by meeting the needs of mothers and offering adoption services. We reaffirm our support for appointment of judges who respect traditional family values and the sanctity of life. We oppose the non-consensual withholding or withdrawal of care or treatment, including food and water, from people with disabilities, including newborns, as well as the elderly and infirmed, just as we oppose active and passive euthanasia and assisted suicide
So if they can't deliver on their very first legislative priority with a healthy majority in the Iowa House, do they deserve your support at the Polls?
Will you show up for them if they fail to deliver?
