4A ❚ THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2018 ❚ THE DES MOINES REGISTER METRO EDITION depression, guilt, alcohol and drug use and physical problems that made it im- possible for her to become pregnant af- ter she turned her life around, married and wanted to have a family. “I lived through the reality that the only chil- dren I ever carried, I killed,” said Stol- tenberg, who held up a tiny plastic mod- el of a fetus as she spoke. The hearing was held in the relatively cramped quarters of the old Supreme Court Chambers in the Capitol. Only a few dozen people, including legislators and members of the media, could fit in- side. Outside the hearing room, about 200 abortion foes and abortion-rights supporters gathered in the Statehouse Rotunda. They watched the proceed- ings on a video screen, and regularly cheered as their side made points in the hearing. Several doctors spoke about the need to have abortion available as a safe, legal option, including in cases of teen rape victims or women who have been told their unborn children have fatal physi- cal problems. University of Iowa medical student Emily Boevers told the legislators she wants to become an obstetrician/gyne- cologist and practice in Iowa. But she said the bill would threaten the future of the UI’s OB/Gyn residency program, which is the only one in the state. “Iowans want to see representatives fo- cusing on improving what our state of- fers, not decreasing women’s health care access,” she said. Kathi Aultman, a retired obstetrician, said she performed many abortions be- fore realizing after she gave birth to her own child that the procedure was wrong. “I love to meet adults that I deliv- ered, but it’s always bittersweet because I’m reminded of all the people I’ll never meet because I aborted them. It also re- minds me that I am a mass murderer,” she said. The hearing drew a visit from former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, a Texas Republican who now works against abortion nationally. He thanked the Iowa legislators pushing the strong anti-abortion bill, which he said recog- nizes the humanity of a fetus with a beating heart. “It’s not a piece of flesh. It’s not a bug. It’s not a parasite. It’s a little baby,” he said. Several abortion opponents alluded to God’s will in the matter. But some foes of the bill said it’s not the government’s job to tell citizens what God wants. Deb- bie Griffin, a Disciples of Christ pastor, said the bill would interfere with Iowans’ right to make their own health care decisions based on their beliefs. The bill, she said, “is another example of patriarchal politics and extremist Chris- tian fervor attempting to force their in- dividual religious beliefs on others.” The hearing came at the request of Democrats on the House Human Re- sources Committee. The committee vot- ed 12-9 last week for the “fetal heart- beat” amendment, which is similar to a Senate bill that passed earlier this year. Although the committee’s Democrats lost last week’s vote, they had the right to seek a public hearing before the bill moves to a debate before the full House. After Tuesday’s hearing, committee Chairman Joel Fry, R-Osceola, said he wasn’t sure when the full House might consider the bill, but he said a debate will happen. “We’re not doing this for fu- tility,” he said of the hearing. Committee member Ako Abdul Sa- mad, D-Des Moines, said Democrats thought it was important for the public to be heard on the bill. “In order to be their voice, we needed to hear their voices,” he said. Both sides expect passage of the pro- posal would lead to an immediate court battle, which could take years to play out. Supporters of the bill hope it will find its way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which could use it to overturn the land- mark Roe v. Wade decision. The 1973 case found that women have a constitu- tional right to abortion in the first tri- mester of pregnancy.

KELSEY KREMER/THE REGISTER The bill “is another example of patriarchal politics and extremist Christian fervor attempting to force their individual religious beliefs on others.” Debbie Griffin Disciples of Christ pastor Piercy assisted with the production and performances of the play. Helping out with a community play isn’t what community service should look like, said William Camm Seay, the special prosecutor who initially charged Piercy in December 2015. “I’m a believer that when you have suffered the consequence, a judgment is rendered against you and you do your time, then you are looked at differently,” Seay said. “But I don’t feel like in this in- stance, I don’t feel like he had done what he should have done. ... Did he get what he deserved? No.” Piercy pulled over Brandon Ellingson of Clive, Iowa, on the water for suspicion of boating while intoxicated in May 2014. He was taking Ellingson for a breath test when the Arizona State University student fell into the water. Piercy had put the wrong style of life jacket on the handcuffed man, causing the safety de- vice to come off when he went into the water. The trooper was fired after Elling- son’s death. A lawsuit filed by Piercy looking to get his job back is ongoing. The Kansas City Star reports that the judge didn’t specify where community service had to be completed, so Piercy was given credit for working a play at the Royal Theatre in Versailles, Missou- ri. He has dabbled in community theater before. Ellingson’s parents and a prosecutor say assisting a play isn’t an appropriate service, especially when it’s already a hobby. Trooper Continued from Page 3A Animal control officers removed more cats from a Des Moines home Monday, bringing the total to 32 alive and 17 dead, officials said. Officials with the Animal Rescue League of Iowa removed an addi- tional five living and eight dead cats from the east side house, where they removed 27 living and nine dead cats and kittens last week. The res- cue league is still trying to capture two more cats at the home at 819 Morton Ave., in the city’s Union Park neighborhood. Police said officers found about 6 inches of cat feces and garbage in the home when they responded to an odor complaint Wednesday. Charges are pending against the owner, said Sgt. Paul Parizek, a po- lice spokesman. Des Moines allows six cats and dogs per household. The Rescue League said last week that it may be hard to quantify how many cats were in the home because several were “decomposed to the ex- tent that they weren’t readily identi- fiable as cats.” At least 10 other cats were found hiding in air ducts and in the home’s walls. Officials set humane live traps to try rescue them. In a news release Friday evening, the Rescue League said the house was condemned and closed for the weekend, and that enough food and water was left for the remaining cats until they could enter again Monday. “Animal hoarding is a serious ani- mal welfare concern because the an- imals — and the people involved — often suffer greatly,” ARL Executive Director Tom Colvin said in a state- ment.
