Citizens and clergy from all across Iowa joined Governor Reynolds, pro-life legislators, Lutheran Family Service and the other Coalition of Pro-Life Leaders for the Iowa Prayer Rally for Life on Monday, March 2, 2020 in support of LIFE and the Protect Life Amendment. Together, we are a voice for LIFE!
The only way to stop abortion in Iowa is through the Protect Life Amendment.
The Iowa constitution must be amended to clearly state there is no right to an abortion nor tax payer funding of abortion found within the document. Without the passing of this critical measure, all attempts to restrict abortion in Iowa are doomed to failure. It is believed the ban on abortion after 20 weeks gestation will succumb through a judicial challenge if an amendment to the constitution is not passed by the legislature and later ratified by the people of Iowa.
As Christians and citizens of Iowa, we must relentlessly work to further the cause of life! So, what can you do to take action and be a voice for LIFE?
Below, Governor Kim Reynolds explains and supports the Protect Life Amendment.

Lutheran Family Service Life Advocate, Rev. Dr. Jim Lamb, and Life Ministries Director, Kim Laube, work to inform Iowa citizens of the importance of the Protect Life Amendment and also ways that Iowa citizens and congregations can help reach and support women facing crisis pregnancies.
Iowa District West President, Dr. Steve Turner, and many clergy from across Iowa join in support of the Protect Life Amendment and to bring that message back to their congregations.
Many pro-life legislators were able to be a part of the Iowa Prayer Rally for Life.
A nice sized group attended the 2020 Iowa Prayer Rally for Life.
Following the Prayer Rally, over 50 attendees learned the basics of lobbying to encourage, pray for and work to influence their legislators to support the Protect Life Amendment. Lutheran Family Service Life Ministries Director, Kim Laube, and Iowa Catholic Conference Lobbyist, Tom Chapman, gave an excellent overview of how to call out, meet with, or leave a letter for their legislators thanking them for their service, sharing their personal stories and views, and asking them to vote yes for the Protect Life Amendment.
We at Lutheran Family Service, together with you, the Church, and pro-life citizens of Iowa must continue to fight for and defend the value of all life from fertilization to natural death. Because that baby in her mother’s womb, she’s a baby!
Rev. Max Phillips
