This bill outlawing abortion before the point most people would know they are pregnant will not lead to the end abortions in Iowa.
This ban will lead to unsafe abortions.
It will lead to unhealthy women.
It will lead to babies, known to be unviable while still being carried to term, to die outside the womb.
It will lead to dead would-be parents.
It will lead to unwanted or unsupported children.
It will lead to rape survivors being responsible for raising their rapists children.
It will not protect the living.
Instead it will force Iowans into childbirth.
If we trust Iowans, we must trust them with their own bodies, planning their own parenthood and their own medical decisions. The majority of Iowans — your constituents — believe abortion should be legal and safe.
Please oppose this bill.
