Today, Governor Kim Reynolds signed into law an extreme abortion ban that will take away a woman’s right to choose and is just the latest state ban enacted by Republican elected officials following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade one year ago. Iowa’s new law will penalize health care providers and cause delays and denials of health and life-saving care.
While Republican elected officials advance dangerous laws, President Biden and Vice President Harris stand with the majority of Americans who believe personal health care decisions should be between a woman and her doctor, not politicians, and will continue to call on Congress to codify the protections of Roe v. Wade in federal law. The Biden-Harris Administration will continue to defend access to reproductive health care and fight any attempts to pass a national abortion ban.
