Supreme Court decision is good for women’s health care

Iowa Senate News Release
For Immediate Release: 
June 29, 2018  

Statement from Senate Democratic Leader Janet Petersen

“The decision today by the Iowa Supreme Court is a victory for the constitutional rights of Iowa women.

“It’s a shame that Governor Reynolds and legislative Republicans are working overtime to prevent women from accessing health care. That’s wrong. They are politicians, not doctors.

“It’s time for Republicans and Democrats to come together to increase access to health care for more Iowa women, not set up new barriers, hurdles and hoops.”
