Life is For Everyone

 

 

 

 

Iowans for LIFE is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting innocent human life by informing,  influencing,  and inspiring society to value the sanctity of human life.

Our mandate is to defend the God-given gift of life from conception until natural death.

The battle against the culture of death is being won. Slowly but surely hearts and minds are changing.

The pro-life movement is growing. We are so encouraged by the number of young people flocking to the movement.

But there is a lot of work that yet needs to be done.  JOIN US.

Our Prayer and Our Passion...

That all human life, from conception to natural death, be valued by society and protected by law.

Director Maggie Dewitte giving the keynote speech at the Walk for Life in Dubuque in Jan. 2016
