Our Story

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. Learn more on our Education Page and submit your questions or suggestions for content.

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. Find out how to Get Involved.

Our Mission Statement

It is our mission to encompass within the protection of our laws all human life, born and unborn, at all stages of biological development from fertilization to natural death. We join with each other in this common objective in the shared belief that every human life has inherent value and is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect without regard to age, health, sex, mental or physical limitations, condition of dependency, circumstances of birth or economic circumstances.

We are further committed to fostering and promoting public support for responsible life affirming alternatives to abortion, infanticide and euthanasia. We will oppose any policies, practices or procedures that dehumanize or otherwise marginalize any category of human life specifically including medically vulnerable persons such as infants, the elderly, the disabled and those suffering from chronic or terminal illness.

We are committed to obtaining the aforementioned objectives by lawful activity including educational, legislative, advocacy and political action.
