As the nation awaits the overturn of Roe, Iowa took a pro-life stance, deciding that abortion is not protected by its state constitution.

From The Epoch Times. The Supreme Court of Iowa on June 17 overturned a four-year-old decision it made that had held the Iowa Constitution guarantees the right to abortion, and determined the state constitution doesn’t provide any such guarantee.

Find out when your state prays.


The move allows the Republican-controlled Iowa General Assembly to move forward with plans to restrict or possibly prohibit abortions in the state….

The ruling also came a month after both chambers of the Iowa General Assembly approved a proposed amendment to the Iowa Constitution stating that “this Constitution does not recognize, grant, or secure a right to abortion or require the public funding of abortion,” as The Epoch Times reported. To take effect, the amendment must be agreed to by two successive General Assemblies and ratified by a majority of Iowa voters….


In a 2018 ruling, the Supreme Court of Iowa found that abortion was protected by the state constitution. The court ruled at the time that “autonomy and dominion over one’s body go to the very heart of what it means to be free.”

But in its new decision, the Iowa court held that its 2018 ruling “insufficiently recognizes that future human lives are at stake….”

The composition of the state’s high court has changed in the four years since Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds, an outspoken pro-life advocate, took office….

Reynolds issued a statement praising the new ruling.

“Today’s ruling is a significant victory in our fight to protect the unborn,” she said.

“The Iowa Supreme Court reversed its earlier 2018 decision, which made Iowa the most abortion-friendly state in the country. Every life is sacred and should be protected, and as long as I’m governor that is exactly what I will do….”

Lord I Thank you that Iowa is taking an independent stand following its governor’s Godly lead. I thank you that this example can influence other states to not just sit and wait to see what California does- which is a horrible mindset to sit under. Thank You Lord For This Woman’s strength and courage and her team that must have stood around her-, to guard her back.
Thank you Lord for giving her the power of your Holy Spirit and your healing in her mind.
I pray other states will follow her lead Lord.. I Thank you for all the trigger States Lord that will follow the dobbs decision in upholding the 15-week law in Mississippi.
A glorious will be done in killing our nation and putting us back on the path of righteousness for your namesake.. and help the store to stand against the onslaught of retaliation and Lord met that violence in in those individual acts around the country against pregnancy centers in churches Lord come under your Authority Lord and I just pray against them and speak against them right now that it would end. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen

Awesome, praise be to God. May God richly bless the state of Iowa for standing on God’s righteousness.

Inn 2018 the Iowa Basic assumption was either blatantly ignorant, or purposefully obscured. The Baby’s body is not the woman’s Body. It has its own genetic codes!! The Baby’s body is its own body, separate from the mother who “houses” it while it develops
