After state budget cuts, Planned Parenthood announced it would close 4 of their 12 facilities in Iowa.


A victory for women’s health in Iowa. It’s time to fund health centers that give women real options!

An estimated 30 people will be laid off as a result of the move by the Republican-led legislature to block state money for family planning services to abortion providers. The state is discontinuing its federal Medicaid family planning network and instead will set up a new state-run family planning program, so that it can prohibit the funding of abortion clinics.

Planned Parenthood announced earlier this week closings of its only clinic in Wyoming and three in New Mexico.
