October Prolife Events

November News

Respect Life month is almost over, and everything has gone so well with the witness of Life Chain and 40 Days for Life, among many events. Keep up the great work with 40 Days for Life, which will be ending in early November. Below are some important events coming up and inspiration to continue being active.



The clear pro-life choice is Romney-Ryan. Please pray and consider fasting for the result of the presidential and local elections.


40 Days for Life

This 40 Days for Life campaign has already saved at least 219 babies (as of the halfway point).  Peaceful, prayerful witness can and is changing hearts. Thank you to everyone who coordinates and participates in this ministry!

March for Life Pilgrimage Information – Sign up Today!

Iowans For L.I.F.E. is securing several buses to take pro-life Iowans to the March For Life in Washington DC. The annual rally will be held on January 25, 2013. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the deadly Roe vs. Wade decision handed down on January 22nd, 1973.

By our presence we are asking the Supreme Court to overturn that decision and not allow the murder of innocent children in their mother’s wombs. Please join us for this important event. Our voices must be heard.

InnerVisions HealthCare Clinic

An Eagle Scout project will soon benefit the InnerVisions HealthCare Clinic. Daniel Underwood of Van Meter will be building a nice back patio for them with benches, tables, and flower beds. This will be an area for women or couples to talk and relax. This will also be an area for volunteers and staff to have an outdoor break. The total cost will be approximately $2400.

If you would like to assist in the fundraising effort, any monetary donations can be sent to InnerVisions HealthCare Clinic at 1355 50th Street, Suite 400, West Des Moines, IA 50266. Please indicate on the envelope or memo line of your check that your donation is for the Eagle Scout Project of Daniel Underwood.

There will also be the opportunity for volunteers to assist in the actual building of the patio area. Adults can use the power tools and youth can help build. Cookies and refreshments will be provided.
