Hannah Krause, the wife of Kum & Go CEO Tanner Krause, is putting together an event called “Iowa: Let’s Talk Reproductive Rights.” The event is discussing efforts to continue the legalized killing of unborn children.

Krause told Axios her initial reaction to the Dobbs decision was to move out of Iowa. She was quoted as saying:

“What will it be like to raise a young woman, coming-of-age, in a state where she won’t have control over her body.”

Same thing said another way…

“What will it be like to raise my daughter in a state where she can’t legally have my grandchild killed?”

Axios said Krause is putting together the event due to the “resources available” to her.

The event, which is scheduled for Nov. 7, will feature two panels. The first will feature the president of the League of Women Voters and an individual from the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics at Iowa State. The second will feature liberal Lyz Lenz and Courtney Reyes of the LGBTQ advocacy group One Iowa.

Krause said she doesn’t have “shared political views” with her family. Kyle and Sharon Krause have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Republicans in Iowa, and Democrats on a smaller scale.

Her husband, Tanner Krause, has donated at least $15,000 to Democrat Deidre DeJear this cycle.

Her hope is people take away a sense of connection to others, to the issue and knowledge on how to take action, she said.

Krause told Des Moines Mom that while she doesn’t necessarily feel motherhood is “one of my most defining identities as a person, I enjoy watching my kids learn and grow and love them with a fierceness I never knew existed.”

Krause was asked what she loves about raising a family in Des Moines, but instead she went on a liberal rant:

“At this moment in time, I have a lot of fear about raising my family in Des Moines. I worry that my daughter won’t have adequate access to reproductive healthcare. I worry that our public school system, what I believe is the backbone of our democracy, is being defunded and a dangerous school voucher system is being championed by our governor. I worry that guns and the political currency they represent are being prioritized over the safety of school children, my children, our children. These issues are too top of mind for me to ignore and I look forward to the day I can push these aside to focus on the reasons why Des Moines can be an amazing place to raise a family.”

Same lady. Same thought process. At the beginning, she expresses concern for the continued legalized killing of unborn babies, and a couple of thoughts later she expressed concern about the safety of children when it comes to guns.


  1. All of the “Resources Available” stemmed primarily from her husband’s business enterprise – Kum & Go Stores. A small percentage of the revenue trickles down into to her pocketbook.

    Now that I know how she intends to spend her considerable resources, I shall begin to exclusively shop at Casey’s and Kwik Star.

    Thank you and good bye Kum & Go…
