Statement for the Record by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
Celebration of Life Day
Thursday, January 23, 2020
January 22nd is Celebration of Life Day, and I wanted to take that opportunity to recognize women facing unplanned pregnancies or parenting young children.
Women with unplanned pregnancies sometimes lack access to advice and support.
They deserve the backing of their community and access to information, resources and quality care.
In Iowa, programs like Ruth Harbor in Des Moines provide a safe place for young women, giving them counseling, education support, life-skills training, parenting training, adoption assistance and access to health care at no cost.
Programs like these are critical.
