Iowa's Senator Joni Ernst has supported multiple anti-abortion bills that allow politicians to interfere in personal health decisions: the so-called “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” an unconstitutional 20-week abortion ban, and the so-called “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.”
These are purely political votes, meant to mislead the public, drive false narratives about abortion later in pregnancy, and interfere with evidence-based patient carse and medical practice -- all with the ultimate goal of banning access to safe, legal abortion.
Eddie Mauro strongly supports a woman's right to make her own health care decisions, but also supports a number of other policies that would improve the lives of women, and their children:
As said by Jacqueline Ayers, vice president of government relations & public policy, Planned Parenthood Federation of America:
“Health care decisions should be made by patients and their trusted health care provider, not by politicians in the Senate. These bills push misinformation meant to end access to abortion, and serve no other purpose than to shame patients and deny people the ability to make the best medical decisions for themselves and their families. Let’s be clear: the politicians behind these bills have one ultimate goal in mind: to ban access to safe, legal abortion in this country — and they know the public is not on their side. The American people overwhelmingly support abortion access, and they want a U.S. Senate that works to expand health care, not take it away.”
