Iowa Pro-life Leaders Petition Branstad to Defund Planned Parenthood

PETITION: STOP FUNDING PLANNED PARENTHOOD IN IOWA

 

Have you seen the undercover video exposing Planned Parenthood’s true depravity?

 

Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Nucatola nonchalantly eats her dinner and drinks her wine as she talks about dismembering precious babies. She crunches her salad while talking about “crunching” the babies, in ways to kill and extract them while protecting the valuable organs (heart, liver, lungs and legs) for resale (a felony in itself).

 

Why do we allow this type of industry in our state? Why did our elected officials, mere weeks ago, use our money to fund their heinous practices?

 

On June 3, 2015, the Iowa House and Senate (House vote: https://www.legis.iowa.gov/docs/pubs/hjweb/pdf/June%2003,%202015.pdf#page=7 Senate vote: https://www.legis.iowa.gov/docs/pubs/sjweb/pdf/June%2003,%202015.pdf#page=12)  passed SF505 HHS, which included funding for Planned Parenthood in the state. Governor Terry Branstad approved the bill on July 2, so Iowa’s money continues to support an industry that kills our youngest Iowans AND sells their bodies, piece by piece.

 

We call on Iowa’s Governor Terry Branstad to keep his campaign promise to defund Planned Parenthood. We expect every legislator who voted to fund Planned Parenthood to call for an immediate investigation into the organization’s practices. We call on Iowa’s churches to rise up for justice, to rescue those being led away to slaughter, and to practically empower Iowans to choose life and care for the living. We cannot deny this evil. We certainly cannot fund it. The time has come to end it.

 

Every person deserves equal protection under the law. Yet, our most vulnerable citizens are being targeted for execution and their bodies sold like objects. We petition our elected employees to stop these crimes and amend our state’s law to protect every Iowan’s inalienable right to life.

Please join the leaders listed below by signing the online petition and asking the leaders of the state of Iowa to act now!

  • Rebeca clinkscales says

    Life is sacred and planned parenthood is evil and there is nothing caring about this company. Their “care at any cost” logo means the cost of hundreds of thousands of lives lost. It needs to be stopped.

  • Noel Johnson says

    Governor Branstad,

    You voice you are Pro-Live but you allow Iowa to fund Planned Parenthood. They are a disgraceful, evil organization. They talked the “we’re here to help, protect, provide for women”. Yes, they provide for women: encourage them to have abortions, then sell the body parts of those babies, encourage early age sex and then come to us for your abortion. Their bottomline trumps all their decisions, not the welfare of women. MONEY, MONEY, SHOW ME THE MONEY!

    Please, please defund Planned Parenthood! NO MORE TAXPAYERS MONEY!

    For all Life,
    Noel Johnson, Denison

  • Cynthia LeValley says

    Please refund Planned Parenthood!

      Is this a typo? Your comment is unclear…they are already funded. Did you mean ‘defund’?
