Don't let Iowa defund Planned Parenthood!

Dear Friend,

Republicans in the Iowa State House are trying to defund Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood receives $6 million a year in state funds to provide critical health care services for low-income women, like cancer screenings, family planning services, and gynecological exams.

And now, in a cynical attempt to push their anti-choice agenda and shut down clinics, Iowa Republicans are willing to block money for all of Planned Parenthood services — even vital health services that have nothing to do with abortion.

One in five women in the U.S. have visited a Planned Parenthood clinic at some point in her lifetime. Planned Parenthood clinics don't just provide family planning resources — they provide vital health care services to women. Many low-income women depend exclusively on Planned Parenthood for crucial cancer screenings.

But anti-woman legislators across the country have launched an all-out assault on Planned Parenthood — and anti-choice activists in Iowa are already pressuring their representatives in the state legislature to pass this legislation.1

We need to make sure that every member of the Iowa State House, no matter whether they are Republican or Democrat, pro-choice or anti-choice, hears that Iowans oppose any attempt to defund Planned Parenthood. Anti-choice representatives need to know their constituents vehemently disagree with their stand. And pro-choice representatives need to know we have their back.

We saw the consequences of the anti-woman campaign to vilify Planned Parenthood when a Planned Parenthood clinic was bombed in Wisconsin. And we saw with the Komen controversy when we stand up we can beat the anti-Planned Parenthood activists.

Every time and everywhere Planned Parenthood is attacked, we need to fight back. Please help us stop this latest effort to destroy Planned Parenthood and block women's access to health care.

Tell the Iowa state House: Don't defund Planned Parenthood!
