Iowa Pro-Life News – February 2011

You might take note of the following news (below) made known by the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition. Respond by your own convictions as you sense God’s leadership to do so.

– Pastor Eric Hann

HF 5 – ACTION NEEDED NOW

            The coalition of pro-life groups, The Iowa Catholic Conference, Iowans for LIFE, Iowa Right to Life and Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition, as well as many pro-life individuals across Iowa have patiently pursued the passage of HF 5 in the Iowa House of Representatives.  The people of Iowa, especially those in Council Bluffs, who vehemently object to the establishment of a late term “abortuary” in this state, want action NOW.  No more dialogue, no more reasoning, begging or cajoling.  It is time to move HF 5 from the House of Representatives by any method available to the majority party.

            HF 5, which has been labeled the late term abortion bill, fetal pain bill or the 20 week limit bill, will save the lives of some unborn children.  It has languished in the Human Resources Committee of the House for over six weeks.  It matters not why; it just has.  It is time to get it moving through the process on the House side so that we have enough time to work on the Senate and get it to the governor’s desk for signature. 

            We have talked to all the players on many occasions in these past six weeks.  We have convinced some, but not all, that, do I dare to say the word, “incrementalism” is not a bad thing.  Sometimes it’s a good thing if it saves lives.  HF 5 becoming law will save lives.  I for one don’t care how many; the more the better.  But doing nothing is reprehensible. 

            We need you to contact your state representatives and ask them to pass HF 5 out of the House NOW.  E-mail or call your state representative today and tomorrow and the day after until they act on HF 5.

You can contact leadership in the House or members of the House Human Resources Committee or any other representative. Listed below is contact information for the Iowa House Majority (Republican) Leadership and the House Human Resources Republican members (who are more likely to have pro-life leanings)
