On January 16, Kaplan Hecker & Fink filed an amicus brief at the Iowa Supreme Court in Planned Parenthood of the Heartland v. Reynolds on behalf of RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association. This amicus brief, filed in support of the petitioners Planned Parenthood, the Emma Goldman Clinic, and Dr. Sarah Traxler, urges the Iowa Supreme Court to strike down the state’s abortion ban.

As the brief explains, “Iowa’s abortion ban would have devastating consequences for families actively trying to have children. It is clear both from the text and the implications of the ban that the Legislature failed to consider these consequences when it passed the law. We respectfully urge this Court to consider them now and strike down this ban.”

The Kaplan Hecker & Fink team included managing partner Julie Fink and associate Selena Kitchens. The brief, which can be read here, reflects the firm’s commitment to fighting for reproductive rights and women’s health.
