Progress Iowa Executive Director Matt Sinovic issued the following statement in response to President Biden signing an executive order protecting abortion rights this afternoon:

“No matter our income or where we live, Iowans believe in protecting our freedom to reproductive health and safety which includes the access to abortion.

“Today’s executive order by President Biden is a great step forward in protecting the right to an abortion. His action today will ensure Americans maintain access to FDA-approved medication abortion and other reproductive health services such as emergency contraception and birth control. 

“But we can’t stop here. Our elected leaders must codify the right to an abortion and protect reproductive health and safety across the country.”
