Fighting for women. Hand in hand with a variety of organizations across the state, Iowa Right to Life has been fighting for women in the wake of the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court case, providing information on resources available in Iowa for women who are considering abortion and resources on healing and comfort for women who suffer from post abortion syndrome.

Women are often pressured into having abortions – because they don’t have the financial resources; because an abusive person in their life said so; because they struggle with health problems or addictions; because they don’t have any place or anyone to turn to.

Thousands of women and their babies have been saved by Iowans who generously reached out to pregnant women in crisis. Services available include financial assistance, pre- and post-natal health care, a safe place to stay, child care, and counseling, to name a few. There are resources out there and there are people who care.

Take Action. Iowa Right to Life also fights vigorously against anti-life extremists who continue to threaten our lives and our basic rights in the legislature, the courts – even in our schools. And over the years, the threats to the sanctity of life have increased, including more dangerous forms of abortion; the euthanizing of the disabled and elderly; the use of human embryos for experimentation and cloning, and more.

Through grass roots lobbying, educational efforts and public-awareness programs, Iowa Right to Life has been on the front lines, working with thousands of Pro-lifers across Iowa to promote the value of human life. Throughout the nation, and certainly here in Iowa, there is a new energy from the increasing numbers of young adults and teens active in the movement.

But there is much to be done. And there are many exciting ways for you to get involved and donate your time, talents and resources to the cause of life.
