Take Control

Vote to keep abortion and birth control legal in Iowa.

Iowa is at risk in the wake of the decision to overturn Roe v. WadeStates now have the power to ban abortions even in the case of rape or incest. Our rights and access to reproductive health care depend on elected leaders at all levels of government.

Vote for MacKenzie Bills and other Planned Parenthood champions up and down the ballot.

MacKenzie Bills for HD 40

MacKenzie Bills is a 5th generation Iowan who is committed to serving people across the state when she is elected to the Iowa House. As a anti-human trafficking advocate, she is a strong champion for women and people who can get pregnant. In the House, she will fight to protect and expand sexual and reproductive health care. In response to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Bills spoke out for reproductive freedom: "It is not my place nor the government’s to step into personal life decisions, especially something as personal as family planning. I stand for the safety and health of women and their children and that is why I oppose this decision and promise to fight for family planning at the state house."

Bill Gustoff, A Threat to Reproductive Freedom

A growing number of Iowans support safe, legal abortion, but Bill Gustoff supports the unpopular effort to amend the state constitution to allow the legislature to further restrict abortion in the state. Gustoff also supports banning all abortion in the state, without exceptions for rape and incest.

The Stakes

Control of Iowans’ bodies is on the ballot this November. Politicians will have more say over our sexual and reproductive health care than we do, after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, obliterating federal protections to abortion. State legislators will decide whether to ban abortion.

Abortion is still legal in Iowa, but we are going to have to fight like hell to keep it that way. We must elect leaders up and down the ballot that will fight for sexual and reproductive health care—including abortion—for all Iowans. 

Deidre DeJear for Governor

Deidre DeJear is the only candidate in the governor's race that is fiercely committed to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom. In addition to her promise to codify the right to abortion in Iowa, DeJear has pledged to restore public funds for family planning services, ensure access to age-appropriate, medically accurate, research-informed sex education, increase access to birth control, expand reproductive and sexual health services in rural areas, and establish paid parental leave provisions in the state.
