Theresa believes in women’s constitutional right to make their own health care decisions, and she understands that we cannot take these freedoms for granted.
For decades, politicians in Washington and in states across the country have attacked women’s health care rights with the goal of shutting down Planned Parenthood and pushing rigid, uncompromising restrictions that jeopardize women’s health and safety and interfere in complicated and deeply personal decisions. Thousands of people in the heartland rely on Planned Parenthood for their health care, serving a crucial part of our population.
Theresa believes all women, regardless of where they live or how much money they make, should have access to safe, high-quality, affordable health care. And at a time when maternal wards of rural hospitals are closing, leaving pockets of Iowa without the care they need to safely deliver children, Theresa knows we need to expand our compassionate care to every corner of Iowa.
Theresa is proudly endorsed by EMILY’s List and NARAL Pro-Choice America, and she will always work to defend women’s rights and health.
