DES MOINES, IOWA (March 27, 2019) — Governor Kim Reynolds released the following statement after the Iowa Senate voted to pass SF513, which would allow more access to contraceptives through over-the-counter prescriptions:

“Anything we can do to prevent unintended pregnancies, we should look at it. I want to thank the Iowa Senate for working with me to increase access to contraception for Iowans. The policy makes sense, and it’s the right thing to do.”
