I support abortion rights!
Dear [Decision Maker],
We, the undersigned Iowans, strongly oppose any and all attempts to ban or restrict access to safe, legal abortion in the state of Iowa. Currently, SF 2281, a 6-week ban on abortion, threatens to set reproductive rights back by decades, and that is not something anyone should want for our state.This bill would ban nearly all safe, legal abortion by making it illegal to terminate a pregnancy the moment a fetal heartbeat is detected - before many women even know they are pregnant - with very narrow exception for medical emergency. This legislation would intentionally challenge Roe v. Wade and interfere with Iowans' personal, private medical decisions.
We stand with the medical community, legal community and the majority of Iowans who strongly oppose this legislation. Abortion is constitutionally protected health care, and politicians have no right to make medical decisions for other people. We do not want Iowans' reproductive rights taken away, and Iowa taxpayers cannot afford the lengthy, divisive legal battle that would result if this legislation was enacted into law.
Please do the right thing, and resist any and all attempts to ban or restrict access to safe, legal abortion.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
