Juda Myers began her speech by asking who would come to her aid if a man suddenly attacked her. Everyone in the room raised their hand. Myers wishes people felt the same way about protecting life in the womb. The pro-life advocate pointed out that her DNA is the exact same as the day she was conceived in a gang rape.
On the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Myers visited the Iowa State Capitol to share her message. Packed into a conference room were 75 attendees who listened intently to Myers’ story. Among the crowd were 15 Republican state legislators, including Senate Minority Leader Bill Dix.
Many people who consider themselves pro-life make exceptions in the case of rape and incest. Juda Myers wants those exceptions to end.
“The people who believe in abortion for rape and incest only, if you’re a pro-life person and you say, ‘But…’ I would like to take the ‘but’ out because in the case of rape and incest, that’s a crime,” Myers said. “It is illegal, I believe, to tamper with any evidence of a crime. Am I correct? Then why is it that people will section out to protect the criminal in rape and incest?”
