Iowa Legislature takes baby step for life
In intense negotiations at the Iowa Capitol, a Conference Committee Report was approved that requires women be “given the opportunity to view an ultrasound image of the fetus” as part of the standard of care before receiving an abortion.
The FAMiLY LEADER commends the hard work of many legislators in taking this step to defend the value of human life. Giving mothers an ultrasound of their child can only help reveal how precious life is, and it is our hope that these informed mothers will, indeed, embrace the life of their unborn child.
While in any legislation, there are always nuances we may wish were stronger, The FAMiLY LEADER remains committed to seeking a day when all life is cherished, from conception to natural death, in culture, in law, and in state spending priorities.
