Planned Parenthood Voters of Iowa PAC (PPVI PAC) is pleased to announce seven gubernatorial candidates are confirmed to speak on their plans to improve reproductive and sexual health in Iowa at the Vote. Win. Campaign Kickoff on Tuesday, April 10.
Despite what ranking Iowa Representatives reported yesterday, far-right members of the House Human Resources Committee have advanced a dangerous ban on abortion by adding the unpopular and unconstitutional policy as an amendment to SF 359, a bill that regulates the use of fetal tissue.
The Iowa Senate has voted along party lines 30-20 to pass the bill that would make abortion functionally illegal after six weeks – an extreme move that defies all medical and legal standards of women’s reproductive health and constitutional rights.
The Iowa Senate and House have introduced a pair of bills that would outlaw nearly all abortion in the state by making it illegal to terminate a pregnancy the moment a fetal heartbeat is detected – before a woman might even know she is pregnant.
