DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds will join for a Statehouse rally in opposition to abortion rights.
Nine groups opposed to abortion rights will gather Monday afternoon in the Capitol Rotunda to pray. They later will meet with lawmakers to discuss abortion-related legislation.
Branstad opposes abortion rights but has declined to say whether he supported any abortion bills introduced this session.
Jennifer Bowen, executive director of Iowa Right to Life, says this is the 10th anniversary of the annual rally.
She says her organization supports a bill introduced by Republican Rep. Matt Windschitl of Missouri Valley that would ban abortions in which a doctor meets with a woman by webcam and can then prescribe medication.
