This morning, activists from all across Iowa came to rally together to defend life and lobby legislators to defund abortion providers. The keynote speaker was Dan Becker, the founder of Personhood USA.
We had a terrific time of worship, along with comments by Bob Vander Plaats, Chuck Hurley, Danny Carroll, Tamara Scott, and Greg Baker.
Also, a 14-year old named Josiah addressed the crowd in the rotunda. Josiah has come faithfully to the capitol for several weeks and had pulled legislators out by himself and had good conversations with them about why these issues are important to him. And legislators listen! He challenged everyone present that if he can do it at 14, the rest of us don’t have much of an excuse.
Here’s some photos of the rally:
