20 week ban goes to Governors desk

By a vote of 55-41, the ban passed the House April 5. The legislation also enacted a 72-hour waiting period before an abortion could be performed.Pro-life supporters are praising the Iowa House of Representatives on passing legislation that bans almost all abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Address of the State Chaplain, Rev. William Reynolds, to the 2017 Iowa State Knights of Columbus convention

Just about ten days ago I was honored to join our worthy state deputy Jon Aldrich, our worthy state warden Paul Lee, and our state worthy membership director Michael Gaspers, in addition to about a dozen other knights, at an event in Des Moines.
