Recently our new Gov. Kim Reynolds, R-Iowa, released a video with her daughters about how wonderful of a mother she is. I was baffled by this, considering that not only has the governor waged a war on maternal health, but all women’s health. This war was spearheaded by defunding Planned Parenthood clinics in the state.
The complete insanity of the crisis she has created in this state for women’s health reminds me of a quote by President Abraham Lincoln, “Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.”
That is exactly what we will do. We are on the right side of history by supporting services that make sure that women’s health is put first before profits.
To make sure that Iowa is an even better place for women and all people. We must start working to fund places like Planned Parenthood again.
