I stand with and for women.
I stand with and for women who want access to birth control, and whose access to both birth control and women’s healthcare has been made so much harder by the de-funding of Planned Parenthood.
I stand with and for women whose right to control and make decisions about their own bodies should long since have been settled law.
And I stand with and for all of Iowa’s vulnerable people who are NOT getting the care and help they need because the majority in the legislature does not seem to care about them – Medicaid patients, especially the disabled, whose services are imperiled; those battling serious mental illness who have nowhere near enough dedicated beds and services they need; the elderly, whose nursing home ombudsman has been “de-funded” – and so many more.
Thank you, Sen. Janet Petersen, for standing up for Iowa’s women.
Let’s work together to help the Iowans who need our help RIGHT NOW!
