In Iowa the Heartbeat Law that protects unborn children from being murdered in the womb was declared unconstitutional by an unelected black-robed tyrant Leftist activist county judge.
This is wrong for a number of reasons. First of all that all Life is sacred and constitutionally protected. Secondly, this law was passed by Iowa’s legislative body, the Iowa Assembly, and signed into law by the Governor.
The third reason is that the county judge who issued this erroneous opinion doesn’t have the authority to declare an act of the legislature as unconstitutional. Judicial review was not granted to any court because of the overreaching power it would give to judges.
Both of these so-called powers were granted to the courts by the courts in their own opinions. A clear power grab and usurpation of the rights of the people.
Someone in the appropriate house of the Iowa Assembly needs to introduce Articles of Impeachment against this county judge, Mr. Michael Huppert since he has clearly overstepped his authority and has decided to enact legislation from the bench.
Unfortunately though I doubt anyone will raise a finger in the Iowa Assembly against activist judges. They all lack the backbone required to do their own jobs.
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.
