WATCH: Gov. Reynolds champions Protect Life Amendment
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds spoke a crowd of roughly 200 pro-life supporters at the Prayer Rally for Life at the Iowa Capitol on March 2, 2020.
Chief among her topics: Iowa’s need to pass the Protect Life Amendment.
“With one ruling the Iowa Supreme Court moved [Iowa] from being one of the most pro-life states in the nation to being one of the most abortion friendly,” the governor explained. “That one ruling was more aggressive than the U.S. Supreme Court was in Roe v. Wade.
“It laid the groundwork to challenge every single regulation and restriction on abortion on demand and opened the doors for public funding of abortion,” she continued. “I believe this decision is wrong, and it’s up to us to correct overreach by the judiciary.”
