On Nov. 8, three of Iowa’s Supreme Court justices will be up for a retention vote, meaning Iowans will decide whether these justices have faithfully and constitutionally executed the duties of their office, and thus should remain as Supreme Court justices, or whether they have not, and should be replaced.
The following is The FAMiLY LEADER’s official statement on the retention of the justices:
The judicial retention vote is a key check and balance the people of Iowa have against judicial overreach. And while The FAMiLY LEADER will not be devoting the extensive staff time and resources required to conduct a judicial vote campaign this year, we encourage Iowans to vote against retaining those judges who have used their office for political activism. In this year’s election, for example, Iowa Supreme Court Justices Brent Appel, Mark Cady, and Daryl Hecht are up for retention – three judges who voted to foist same-sex “marriage” on Iowa and to overrule physicians on the state Board of Medicine to allow “telemed” abortions, which don’t even require a doctor be present. We encourage Iowans to turn the ballot over and vote “no” on Iowa Supreme Court Justices Appel, Cady, and Hecht in November.
