Abortion giant rears its head against pro-life measures

gavel with stethoscopeBy halting a new pro-life law in Iowa and protesting a heartbeat measure in Tennessee, Planned Parenthood continues to show what it thinks about America.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) this week signed a bill that requires a 24-hour waiting period for a woman seeking an abortion. Maggie DeWitte of Iowans for Life tells OneNewsNow Planned Parenthood quickly obtained a court injunction to block the law from going into effect.

"Iowa law requires waiting periods for a number of things, including adoption and marriage," DeWitte begins. "It's really just unconscionable that Planned Parenthood won't allow a woman 24 hours to reconsider ending her child's life."

26 states currently require a 24-hour or longer waiting period before a woman can abort a child.

"Now our Iowa judges won't even allow this reasonable restriction," the pro-lifer laments. "In the end, that's why we really need to pass a Protect Life Amendment, because we need something in our Constitution that unelected judges can't tamper with."

The case will make its way through the court system, which will take a good deal of time before it likely ends up before the Iowa Supreme Court.

But DeWitte adds that since Governor Reynolds took office, she has appointed a couple of pro-life judges to the court, which gives a degree of promise that the law just might be upheld.

Janet Porter of Faith2Action says the abortion giant continues to demonstrate what it thinks of America.

"While 29 states have introduced heartbeat bills, ten states have passed them -- and counting. And it's a great bill," Porter says in response to Tennessee Governor Bill Lee (R) signing a heartbeat measure into law in his state. "It has no exceptions in the bill for taking the life of a baby with a beating heart -- [not even] for the crime of their father, if they happen to be the product of rape or incest."

The measure bans all abortions if a preborn baby's heartbeat can be detected, and it also requires that any women seeking an abortion be informed that if she changes her mind after starting the first phase of a chemical abortion, the procedure can be reversed in many cases. In fact, more than 900 babies in that situation have been saved.

Considering this win for life, Porter is not surprised that Planned Parenthood staged a demonstration at the governor's mansion in which a U.S. flag was burned and placed in a garbage can.

"But it is very revealing of really where the pro-abortion movement is," she adds. "They are in it for money. They are not in it for children or for the women who are harmed by the abortion industry, and it's just something that exposes who they are."

Porter says the more America sees of who the pro-abortion movement is, the less people approve of what it has been doing and continues to do. She adds that in burning the flag, Planned Parenthood is also protesting the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
