Senator Zach Wahls, the Democrat leader in the Iowa Senate, released the following statement on today’s Iowa Supreme Court decision reversing a previous decision that there is a “fundamental right” to abortion in the Iowa Constitution:

“Today’s disastrous Iowa Supreme Court decision is a direct assault on the freedom of Iowa women to make their own health care decisions and of all Iowans to exercise their right to self-determination. The Republican-controlled Supreme Court of the United States is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade — and Iowa Republican politicians have made it clear they want to completely ban abortion without exceptions as quickly as possible. Iowans must use the ballot box to fight back and protect the freedoms we have fought to secure. To protect our right to self-determination, Iowans must cast their ballots for Democrats at every level of government.”
