Case No. 20-0804

Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, Inc., on behalf of itself and its patients
v.
Kim Reynolds, Iowa Department of Human Services, Iowa Department of Public Health, and Kelly Garcia in Her Official Capacity as Director of the Iowa Department of Human Services, and Interim Director of the Iowa Department of Public Health

Respondents appeal from a district court order granting petitioner’s motion for summary judgment and enjoining as unconstitutional recent legislation which placed restrictions on eligibility for funds from two grant programs, the Community Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program (CAPP), and the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP). See 2019 Iowa Acts ch. 85, §§ 99, 100. Respondent contends the court erred in finding the statute violates equal protection by excluding abortion providers like petitioner from eligibility for the grant funds.
