Just minutes before a scheduled committee vote yesterday, Republicans dropped a secret plan to prohibit abortion beginning as early as 6 weeks, called “fetal heartbeat”.

Make no mistake about it, House Republicans are pushing this through at the last minute for the special interests because they don’t want to hear from Iowans. The House Human Resources Committee is planning to vote on this bill TODAY at 3:00 PMWe need just two Republicans on the Human Resources Committee to vote with Democrats and help us stop this plan. Can you call these four Republicans right now and tell them to vote NO on the fetal heartbeat amendment to Senate File 471?

• Rep. Michael Bergan – 563-380-3974
• Rep. Dave Heaton – 319-931-4792
• Rep. Tom Moore – 515-281-3221
• Rep. Rob Taylor – 515-281-3221

Here’s what we know about this terrible amendment so far:

• It was unveiled just hours before a committee vote last night (because of your calls it was delayed until today!)
• It appears the amendment will ban common forms of birth control
• It bans abortion as early as 6 weeks, before many women even know they are pregnant
• Similar fetal heartbeat bills have been ruled unconstitutional (Arkansas) and vetoed by Republican Governors (Ohio)

Please call these Representatives as soon as possible!

Thank you for your help, and for all you do!
