In response to the Iowa Supreme Court’s decision to block the 72-hour waiting period for Iowa women to get access to critical health care, Iowa Democratic Party Vice Chair Andrea Phillips released the following statement:
“Today, the Iowa Supreme Court sided with Iowa women and families, Iowa values, and the Iowa Constitution. Hopefully, today’s decision will serve as a sign to Kim Reynolds and her extreme, conservative allies that it’s time to stop using Iowa families as pawns for their ideological agenda.
This fight is far from over, but today is proof that even in the face of incredible odds, Iowa values can and will win. Now more than ever, those of us who want to see our state put back to work for the people and communities we love need to stand together and fight. That’s what Iowa Democrats are going to do, and we invite all Iowans who want to share in a brighter future to join us.”
