“Heartbeat” has its day in court: Dec. 7

Iowa’s Heartbeat Law faces a motion for summary judgment hearing at the Polk County Courthouse in Des Moines on Friday, Dec. 7, at 10:30 a.m.

Depending on how the judge rules, this hearing could mark the only opportunity the public has to continue participating in support of the Heartbeat Law. Iowa’s Coalition of Pro-Life Leaders, therefore, have issued a call to pro-life Iowans to come to the courthouse on Dec. 7 to show their support for unborn life in Iowa.

The following is the text of an email The FAMiLY LEADER sent to supporters, encouraging pro-life Iowans to be a voice for the silent innocents in the womb on Friday, Dec. 7:

Planned Parenthood hopes its most recent legal maneuver will make Iowa’s Heartbeat Law just quietly go away.

Now, Iowa’s unborn children need you to make sure there’s nothing “quiet” about it.

The voice of the innocent in the womb has been ignored long enough! Iowa’s children need YOU to be their voice on Friday, Dec. 7 at 10 a.m.

Mark your calendars, reserve the day off work, and gas up the car to come to the Polk County Courthouse in Des Moines on Friday, Dec. 7. The hearing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m., but you can bet the courtroom will fill up fast, so come early to show your support of Iowa’s unborn children!

Let me be completely transparent: Depending on the judge’s ruling, this may be the only opportunity for the public to participate in the fight for Heartbeat.

So come, show support for Heartbeat, for the Coalition of Pro-Life Leaders, for the legislators who passed the law, and for the attorneys defending it. Join us in prayer. Join us in being a voice. Join us on Friday, Dec. 7, in standing up for unborn lives in Iowa.
