On Thursday May 4th 2018 history was made in the State of Iowa. For the first time since 1973 the unborn have a fighting chance for life.
Around 3 o’clock in the afternoon that day Governor Kim Reynolds was in agreement with the Iowa Assembly when they determined that human life started with a heartbeat. Senate File 359 landed on her desk after it has passed both the Iowa House and Iowa Senate. The Governor then signed the Fetal Heartbeat Bill into law.
At the Governor’s desk was a large crowd of children, parents, and supporters of Life. Even before Governor Reynolds signed the bill making it part of Iowa Law, she knew it would be met with opposition and legal action, by those who seek the death of the unborn for profit and personal gain. Planned Parenthood of Iowa had already threatened the Governor that she would be sued if she signed the Fetal Heartbeat Bill into law.
Two dozen protesters were outside of the Governor’s office at the time of the signing. It has yet to be determined if these people were even from Iowa or if any of them were from outside the state. Here to protest where there was little to no opposition.
Governor Kim Reynolds is a devout believer in the Word of God. She is a champion of Life. And despite the terrible odds that unelected black robed tyrants will in all likely hood prevent this law from taking effect on July 1st. She signed it anyway.
For this reason alone she has my deepest respect. And my continued support and vote for re-election this fall. This champion must remain the Governor of the great State of Iowa for the next 4 years.
