Hello to the New Year!
What is your New Year's resolution? 

As we start this new year and look back on 2016 many of us are thinking of the progress we have made in our lives as we strive to become better people. We also look back and think about what we could have done better or should not have done at all. Maybe it's praying more in those stressful moments and not being so angry, or simply wish we would have spent more time with friends and family. Or could it be that you are tired of having the same resolution every year?

At Iowans for LIFE we too look back at the year and wonder what we could have done more to change hearts and save lives. We look back at our full calendar of events and think about the thousands that we spoke to and may have affected. We think about all the wonderful volunteers that gave their time to also actively change hearts and lives in order to make our country a place where the unborn and elderly are safe to live the lives God gave them to the fullest. So much has been done and yet the task of preserving human dignity never ends. As you think about what you want to do in 2017 to make a difference, remember us; you can help us this year to actively make a difference in your area and in the lives around you. Join us in 2017 as we take on this new year with its new challenges to teach those around us that each and every life matters. Make 2017 a year for LIFE!

The count down has begun and Iowans for LIFE is racing to get the last of our preparations ready as we take over 150 ready souls to the March for Life where we will see hundreds of thousands of other marchers storm the steps of the supreme court as we make a bold statement for the unborn! We ask for your prayers and support as we venture off on another year's  pilgrimage to save the lives of millions. Three buses from western and southern Iowa including 5 buses from our affiliate Dubuque Co. Right to life will leave for DC on our long 21 hour pilgrimage to march for the rights of the unborn.
