Warm up for the year’s Pro-Life Events with the Prayer for Life Rally at the Capitol in Des Moines!
The Prayer for Life is a rally at the Iowa Capitol that usually features a well-known pro-life keynote speaker. After the rally, there is an opportunity to meet and lobby your representatives in the Iowa legislature.

Prayer for Life 2011: Abby Johnson
Woman Planned Parenthood Tried to Silence Speaks Out
DES MOINES—Despite freezing temperatures, Iowans turned out on February 8 to hear Abby Johnson, the former manager of a Planned Parenthood in Texas who made national news when she left her job after taking part in an abortion and seeing the child die on the ultrasound.
Johnson spoke at the annual Prayer for Life, which is sponsored by pro-life groups from across Iowa. Johnson first addressed a standing-room only crowd at the Catholic Center at the Des Moines Diocese and then later went to address the crowd in a rally in the Iowa Capitol rotunda.
