Iowa is a preview of what we will see nationwide if Congress “defunds” Planned Parenthood as part of the dangerous Trumpcare bill.


Use the form on this page or call 202-804-8210 and call your Senators and tell them to Stand with Planned Parenthood and protect access to the care women rely on.

Right now in Iowa, legislators are responsible for closing Planned Parenthood health centers. This is a precursor for what’s to come across the entire country if Trumpcare is passed by the Senate.

Trumpcare was drafted in secret, because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his allies know how disastrous and unpopular it truly is. 80% of voters oppose “defunding” Planned Parenthood. They know that our country wants more access to health care, not less. They know the vast majority of Americans reject efforts to block millions of patients from care by "defunding" Planned Parenthood. They know they are on the wrong side of history.

What’s happening now in Iowa will prevent women from accessing health care and will have devastating consequences.

What to Say (Call Script)

Call Script

Hi, my name is __________, and I live in ___________.

I'm calling to ask my Senator to vote NO on any attempt to defund Planned Parenthood.

This is nothing more than a blatantly political attempt to do whatever it takes to attack women's health and rights and take health care away from the people who need it most. If Congress cuts funding to Planned Parenthood, millions of people will be left without access to birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings, and other basic care. Many of them will have nowhere else to go for the health care they need.

I'm counting on my Senator to do the right thing and stand up for the Planned Parenthood patients in our community and across the country who are counting on those health centers.

I stand with Planned Parenthood because [insert your own story, if you like].

I expect my Senator to vote against any attacks on Planned Parenthood and the vital health services they provide.

Thank you for your time.
