Vander Plaats to speak at Simon Conway’s pro-life rally
A series of investigative videos from the Center for Medical Progress has exposed Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, and its woman-deceiving, horrific practice of butchering and selling baby body parts. Even their own officials admit there’s “gold” for Planned Parenthood in the practice, and it’s a “huge” part of Planned Parenthood’s “bottom line.”
Is this organization really something the taxpayers should be funding?
On Saturday, Aug. 15, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon on the Iowa State Capitol grounds, Bob Vander Plaats of The FAMiLY LEADER will be joining several other prominent leaders at a unified rally for life, giving voice to the babies brutally ripped apart by Planned Parenthood.
Organized by Iowa Right to Life partnering with Simon Conway of WHO Radio 1040AM, the rally is drawing together supporters from several groups across the state and swelling into an event of monumental proportions. Invited speakers include not only Vander Plaats, but all presidential candidates from both parties, as well as Iowa’s leading elected representatives.
Gov. Branstad, Vander Plaats, and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum are among those who have already confirmed to speak.
But this isn’t about the names, politicians, or leaders. It’s about you. And it’s about the babies.
“Now is the time for people all across Iowa to unite in the defense of life and come to this rally,” Vander Plaats said. “Let’s encourage one another to be faithful, encourage Gov. Branstad to follow Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s example in defunding Planned Parenthood, and encourage America to take a stand for the defenseless and just plain human decency.
“This is a moment in history,” he continued. “You want to be able to tell your children and grandchildren you were there, you took a stand, and you refused to be silent!”
