This is Marsy's Law at Work
While legislators discuss moving forward with a constitutional amendment in Iowa, there have been some special interest groups who have tossed around scary "what ifs" that could happen. The truth though, is that 36 other states across the country have victims' rights amendments and defendants still have due process, victims are not being given party status, it's not costing taxpayers more money. Quite the opposite - it's working. Victims are being heard. They are being protected. And if their rights are violated, they can actually do something about it.
Real stories. Real victims. Real progress.
Iowa crime victims want to know, why do crime victims' rights amendments work in other states but some are unwilling to make it work in Iowa?
