Iowa Congressman Steve King Plans Press Conference To Discuss His “No Exceptions” Position On Abortion

Following the backlash from comments reportedly made last week by Iowa’s 4th District Congressman, Steve King, about the origins of humanity being tied to rape and incest, King is calling for apologies from his own party and media members and will be hosting a “No Exceptions to Life” press conference tomorrow (Friday) in Des Moines. King has said he was misquoted in an interview with the Des Moines Register and the Associated Press, who did retract one of the first quotes used, but also stand behind their reporting on the ones regarding rape and incest. King is inviting all press members to join him and others: Rebecca Kiessling, Esq., Conceived in Rape and President of Save the 1; Caitlyn Dixson, Executive Director for Iowa Right To Life; Maggie Dewitte, Executive Director for Iowans for Life; Tim Overlin, Executive Director of Personhood Iowa; and Tamara Scott, host of Truth for Our Time. The press conference is expected to cover the reasoning behind their stance that a “no exceptions” position on abortion is important in federal and state legislation and the support they say it is receiving from other community members. The conference will begin at 2 p.m. Friday at the Airport Holiday Inn on Fleur Drive.
