We oppose all abortions, no matter the method, but when abortions are taking place, the safety and informed consent of the women involved should be among our chief concerns. We have supported bills relating to prohibition of late-term abortions, informed consent, support services for pregnant women, and re-prioritization of government funds away from abortion providers.
Protecting the lives of these children about to be born should not be considered primarily a partisan issue or even a religious issue. For us, this is a question of the common good. Human life is precious and should be protected in our laws. It is in the best interest of the State of Iowa to welcome these new citizens into our midst. Americans reject permissive abortion and want limits to the unfettered destruction of unborn human life.
We are saddened that the Supreme Court has refused to overturn Roe v. Wade; therefore, we support an amendment to the United States Constitution which would offer full legal recognition of the right to life of the unborn child. For more information on federal efforts, visit www.nchla.org. We respect the fact that legislation often involves judgments about the most effective and timely means for advancing the protection of unborn children, and we support passage of legislation that can withstand judicial challenge.
