The ACLU of Iowa works to ensure Iowans can get the reproductive health care they need without shame, obstacles, or stigma.
Iowa has been the site of some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country in recent years, including a 6-week abortion ban law and a 72-hour waiting period abortion law. We successfully challenged them and both laws were declared unconstitutional.
We believe our state needs more women’s health centers, access to affordable birth control, and protections for pregnant workers. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, we’re committed to fighting for reproductive freedom in Iowa.
