The Iowa Legislature is advancing a dangerous bill, Senate Resolution 2, to amend the state Constitution to say that there is no constitutional right to an abortion. Please take a few moments to urge your lawmakers to oppose this bill.
If passed, this joint resolution would place a constitutional amendment on the 2024 ballot that would overturn a 2018 Iowa Supreme Court decision declaring abortion a fundamental right under the state Constitution. This bill would ultimately make it easier for more abortion restrictions and for the state to ban abortion outright if Roe v. Wade is ever overturned, which many fear may be in the near future.

The bill codifies into law beliefs not based on science or morality, but on religion and so-called holy books. The Christian Right has been and remains the primary opponent to women’s reproductive rights.
