Greenfield understands that people should have access to safe, high-quality, affordable health care — including sexual and reproductive health care — regardless of how much money they make or where they live.

Let’s be clear: these two [anti-abortion] bills are extreme, dangerous, and unnecessary. And my Republican opponent supports both. I will always defend a woman's right to make her own health care decisions. These attacks should be off the table.

  • Greenfield promises to defend the constitutional right to access safe, legal abortion. She said: “Our leaders at all levels of government should be working to expand access to health care, not take it away, especially in the midst of a pandemic. I’ll always fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions — now and every day after this is over.”

  • Greenfield spoke out against a Supreme Court decision to let bosses take birth control coverage away from employees. “Access to health care shouldn’t be up for debate,” she said. “This is exactly why we need to elect senators who will fight to make sure vital health care like birth control stays between people and their doctors.”

  • Greenfield pledges to protect the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and protect 1.3 million Iowans with pre-existing conditions. Having grown up on a farm, Greenfield is focused on helping people who live in rural areas get the health care they need.

JONI ERNST (R), Incumbent

A staunch Trump ally, Sen. Ernst has been in lockstep with the president’s efforts to obliterate the ACA and seat federal judges with records hostile to abortion rights.

I'm pro-life, so I think [overturning Roe v. Wade]’s a good goal to have when you're pro-life.
