Ruth Richardson, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood North Central States, vowed to help Iowans navigate seeking reproductive health care as the near-total abortion ban closes in.

Planned Parenthood has several tools to aid in the search for abortion care, including online locators, digital guides to choosing care, and clinics in bordering states with less restrictive abortion regulations.
