VIDEO RECAP: Heartbeat faces Dec. 7 hearing


Iowa’s nation-leading Heartbeat Law was in court Friday, Dec. 7, as Planned Parenthood and friends tried to get the law struck down without even a trial.

The FAMiLY LEADER’s Bob Vander Plaats and Drew Zahn were on the scene, witnessing and reporting on what happened:

Now, here’s what YOU can do next: No matter how Judge Michael Huppert rules, the losing side will almost certainly appeal to the Iowa State Supreme Court. And now, YOU will have the opportunity to have YOUR voice heard on the matter!

The FAMiLY LEADER plans to file an official, on the record, amicus brief targeted for that appeal that specifically comes from “We the People.” It’s about time America’s courts recognize they only get their power from us. So when you join with thousands of other Americans in signing the Heartbeat petition, YOUR name will be listed among “We the People” calling on the courts to defend life!

Sign the petition for life that will be entered into official court records!

In the video below, TFL’s Chuck Hurley explains why this bold move from “We the People” is so historic and so significant:

You’re going to want to be able to tell your children and grandchildren that YOUR name was counted among the Americans who stood up for life on this day!
