Iowa Catholic Conference - legislative session ends

The Iowa legislative session ended Saturday morning at 7:15 a.m. after pulling an all-nighter. Here are a few updates from the past week:

The Senate passed Senate File 471 and sent it to the governor. The bill prohibits abortion after 20 weeks post-fertilization with exceptions to save the life of the mother or for a serious physical health emergency. The bill also contains a three-day waiting period before an abortion. We have been working on this bill since 2011 and it is the…

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.

Now the ban has passed the final hurdle at the Iowa Senate and is on its way to the Governors desk.  This marks the biggest victory to the pro-life movement since Roe v…

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. We joined a consortium of over thirty pro-life and respect life organizations at the rotunda of the Iowa Capitol.

 

In the center of the capitol rotunda was a large baby crib. In it were hundreds of baby shoes, each shoe representing a…

Iowa Catholic Conference Newsletter, April 3, 2017

The second legislative “funnel” deadline was on Friday. Other than budget and tax bills, legislation was required to have passed one chamber and through a committee in the other chamber to remain eligible. Keep in mind nothing is totally dead until the session is over.

Senate File 471 advanced out of the House Human Resources Committee last Wednesday night. The committee fixed the problems we saw in the Senate version of the bill. We will be working to see if we can get…
