40 Days for Life  •  Life Chain  •  Voiceless Movie  •  Annual Dinner & Boot Camp
October is full of LIFE

Fall has arrived and with it many LIFE events and activities that I hope you can join with us.  We just finished up another successful year at the Beaverdale Parade; handing out over 17, 000 LIFE-savers and 2,500 LIFE materials.  We also had a booth at Christ Our Life Conference and had an opportunity to talk with many Catholics from around the mid-west.  We were filled with hope that our culture can be changed!
Pray, Vigil, Outreach
Iowans for LIFE will once again participate in the International campaign to help end abortion. The approach is to pray & fast, provide constant vigil, and community outreach.  We encourage you to reach out to your local church and organize a day to pray outside the Planned Parenthood Clinic in your community starting today through November 6.
