Letter: New restrictions will reduce abortion

New abortion restrictions approved by the Iowa Legislature are in the best interest of women and will significantly reduce abortion.

It is beautiful to see our legislators voting for life for the innocent unborn. The hope of sanity returning to our state in this form of action is such an encouragement. Life is from God. He has the right to give it or to take it away. We don’t have that right, yet our nation has listened to women who for their own convenience have cried out for this form of killing. We need not rehearse the method of abortion and how it is performed. Only to say it is beyond normalcy to lay out the individual parts of a baby on a table to see if they have them all.

Also we need to be glad that much of the funding that would go to abortion groups is being cut. We need to be proud to live in Iowa where we have these wonderful legislators who will vote on the side of right. May we as a state continue to do so. We need to applaud them and continue to vote to keep them in office. Thank you to each one.
