House Members Call for New Iran Policy 

Bipartisan group calls for tougher methods.

A resolution calling for an end to the theocratic regime in Iran has been offered by a bipartisan group in the House of Representatives. Representative Brad Sherman of California, one of the co-sponsors, said, “The people of Iran must rise up and demand their rights.” 

The call for a tougher policy toward Iran grew from the death of a 22-year-old in September who was detained by the Iranian Morality Police because she was not following the strict dress code for women. During her incarceration, she suffered a heart attack, went into a coma, and was declared dead three days later. The resolution was also influenced by reports of the poisoning of several young schoolgirls. 

The House bill is expected to pass and a similar resolution seems to hold certain passage in the Senate also. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of the House as they endeavor to support the people of Iran.
  • For senators as they consider the resolution that encourages civil and human rights in Iran.
