Last April, I wrote some words that I had no idea would be so prophetic. Back then, the state of Nebraska had just passed a few different laws that aimed to protect babies. One of those laws was a ban on abortion after 20 weeks gestation based on the fact that the babies’ nerves are developed to the point that they can feel pain.

I pointed out all those months ago that it sure would be nice if we had legislators in Iowa with the testicular fortitude to pass a law like that. Now, as it turn out, it wouldn’t just be nice. It’s absolutely necessary.

Last week, I saw a national news story about the partial-birth abortionist (a/k/a baby dismemberer), LeRoy Carhart, who is currently based in Omaha, Nebraska. However, thanks to Nebraska’s new fetal pain law, Carhart is looking to move, and what more convenient place could he move than just over the border from Omaha to Council Bluffs, Iowa?

That’s right, LeRoy Carhart wants to bring partial birth abortion right here to Iowa.

So, the only question to be asked is, what is the Iowa legislature going to do to stop it?

We’ve heard a lot about goals to create jobs from the newly elected politicians, but this next legislative session is going to need to also focus a lot on social issues. We knew marriage was going to be a battle this session, but now, abortion, more specifically, stopping abortion, also just rose to the top of the to do list.

This shouldn’t be all that difficult in the Iowa House, but once again, Republicans are going to have to go toe to toe with Mike Gronstal in the Senate if they want to stop the dismemberment of innocent children in this state.

Note to Senate Republicans: Tradition is out the window. You need to step up to the plate and use whatever means necessary to permanently castrate Mike Gronstal of his power. It’s time to knock the dictator off of his self-righteous pagan pedestal. Go around him, go under him, or easiest of all, go over our little napoleon. Get the socially conservatives Democrats, and drag them kicking and screaming along for the castration ceremony. I don’t really care how you do it, but GET IT DONE!
