Yes. Abortion is still safe and legal in the U.S.
Even though the House Joint Resolution 5 amendment passed the house and senate in the 2021 legislative session, it's a long process. The amendment will need to pass the house and senate again in either the 2023 or 2024 legislative sessions. If that happens, the amendment will then be put on the ballot for voters to decide in November 2024.
Abortion is still safe and legal in the U.S. today. A bill that would amend Iowa’s constitution to take away the right to abortion passed its first hurdle this year. This is the first time that the legislature is proposing to remove rights from the state constitution, instead of protecting them. The earliest the proposed amendment would be put to voters on the ballot is in 2024.
Medication abortion, (the abortion pill), works up to 10 weeks of pregnancy. You can usually have your abortion in the privacy of your own home.
In-clinic abortions are safe, simple medical procedures provided by doctors and nurses at a health center.
Telemedicine makes abortion care more accessible with the same level of care, comfort, and safety as a traditional medication abortion.
