Anti-abortion rally held in Des Moines

DES MOINES – An anti-abortion rally was held in Des Moines Monday.

The all-day event was held at St. Anthony’s and the state capitol. Iowa Right-to-Life, Iowans For L.I.F.E., Mercy Medical Center, Iowa Catholic Conference, Teen Pact, Council of Catholic Women, Catholic Charities, Knights of Columbus, Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition, Saint Jude Hospice, and The FAMiLY LEADER all participated.

The day began in Des Moines with a pro-life education seminar at the church – including a prayer – followed by keynote speaker Wesley Smith of the Discovery Institute.

After a lunch, attendees were encouraged to go to the Capitol. Lobbying ocurred from 1:00-3:00 P.M. on the 2nd floor of the Iowa Capitol. Attendees had the opportunity to share their views on life, and pray with legislators. Later in the afternoon, a rally on the 1st floor Rotunda with Wesley Smith was held.

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad attended, thanking attendees “for being part of the pro-life cause. Thank you for the job that you’re doing in educating and getting more people involved in understanding how significant and how important human life is.”

A bill banning telemed abortions was approved earlier this month in a House Committee at the Iowa legislature and is set for debate in the full House.
