For Immediate Release
January 9, 2017 – DES MOINES, Iowa – In an unprecedented move, leaders from nearly a dozen pro-life organizations in Iowa are publicly coming together in unified and unwavering support for the passage of pro-life legislation.
The newly formed Coalition of Pro-Life Leaders consists of a diverse group of state influencers, including but not limited to:
Iowa Right to Life Restored By Grace
The FAMiLY LEADER Personhood Iowa
Iowans for LIFE Life Right Action
“Truly the potential is limitless in our efforts to save unborn lives and protect women when we commit to working together,” said Jenifer Bowen of Iowa Right to Life.
The creation of this Coalition represents an effort to provide both a more effective and unified message of abortion facts to the public and to debunk the misconceptions disseminated by pro-abortion organizations.
“All of the pro-life organizations in Iowa put a tremendous amount of time and effort individually into education,” stated Maggie DeWitte of Iowans for LIFE, “but using our talents and resources in concert will be instrumental in achieving our goals.”
“It is great to be a witness and a participant in such a historic pro-life event,” said Bob Vander Plaats of The FAMiLY LEADER. “Never has society been so ready or the time been more right for change. This coalition looking through a common lens with a singular focus, saving unborn lives, will help make those changes happen.”
The Coalition of Pro-Life Leaders will publicly sign an official document of their shared commitment on Wednesday, January 11, 2017, 1:00-2:00pm, in the Iowa State Capitol Legislative Dining Room. The public is invited to attend.
