SF 359 would outlaw abortion from the moment a fetal heartbeat is detected through abdominal ultrasound – as early as 6 weeks, before most women even know they are pregnant. This bill passed out of committee in the House and now goes to the House floor for debate. Contact your Representative now to stop this dangerous ban on safe, legal abortion!
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to urge you to help put a stop to the 6-week ban on safe, legal abortion in the state of Iowa. Now an amendment to SF 359, the 6-week ban 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 perform an abortion 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.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
