Natoshia Askelson, a researcher for the PPC's Health Policy Research Program and assistant professor at the UI College of Public Health, was quoted in a Quad-City Times article on defunding Planned Parenthood.

The article talks about how Iowa women would have less access and be forced to wait longer to receive disease testing, birth control and other family planning services if Republicans follow through on their pledge to halt state funding to Planned Parenthood. To read the QC Times article, click here.
