Iowa legislator: A colic, crying baby is a good reason for an abortion

    LifeNews: “The Iowa House of Representatives passed a bill recently to ban telemed abortions . . . longtime abortion proponent Beth Wessel-Kroeschell of Ames railed against House Republicans . . . ‘we also know that they have the challenges they bring. They have colic, the sleepless nights, the finances, the disciplinary challenges . . . And what women do know is that we know where our limits are. We absolutely know where our limits are –whether we’re ready, whether we’re physically ready . . .’”

Planned Parenthood expands “telemedicine” in Iowa

Webcam abortions in Iowa banned by the Iowa Board of Medicine

    Townhall: Michael Norton, Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel, commends the Board for standing up and putting the safety of women over the profits of Planned Parenthood: Planned Parenthood and other abortionists should be accountable to basic health and medical standards. That at least includes a licensed professional personally meeting with women who are considering such a serious and potentially life-altering act. That’s why we commend the Iowa Board of Medicine for caring more about the health and safety of mothers than about the profits Planned Parenthood obtains through ‘webcam’ abortions. Chemical abortions pose serious health risks to women, so their care should not be taken lightly. No matter where people stand on abortion, all should be able to agree on that.

Letter Asks Iowa Medical Board to Stop Webcam Abortions

    Alliance Defending Freedom at LifeNews: “American tax dollars should be used responsibly and for the common good, but instead taxpayers are funding organizations like Planned Parenthood that are involved in risky chemical abortion procedures,” said Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Michael J. Norton. “Chemical abortions can be life-threatening and do pose serious health risks to women. No matter where one stands on abortion, all can agree that Planned Parenthood and other abortionists should be accountable to basic health and medical standards, and that at least includes a licensed professional personally meeting with women who are considering such a serious and potentially life-altering act.”
