SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
A pro-life bus tour pulled into Sioux City Monday.
The Susan B. Anthony List, "Women Speak Out:Abortion is Not Health Care" bus tour shared their message about what they call President Obama's extreme record on abortion.
Organizers say Obama's Health Care Mandate is using taxpayer money to fund the largest expansion of abortion since Roe versus Wade.
They say it forces all employers whether religious or secular to pay for insurance plans that cover abortion-inducing drugs and sterilization not just contraception.
"I knew that it meant rationing. I knew that it meant expansion of abortion and most of us know, if you use taxpayer dollars to fund it, it will grow and grow," Marilyn Musgrave, the Susan B. Anthony List Vice President for Government Affairs said.
Planned Parenthood Voters of Iowa, a political action committee, is reacting to the pro-life bus tour.
Jill June, president of the Planned Parenthood Voters says the Affordable Care Act is a historic step forward for women.
Now 12.8 million women will gain access to life saving services.
"Unfortunately there are political organizations and politicians working to take away these life saving health benefits. The women of Iowa are watching and will vote for candidates who will protect women's health care. There is a lot at stake this election, women need to make their voices heard at the polls," Jill June, the president of Planned Parenthood Voters of Iowa released in a statement.
The Women Speak Out bus tour traveled to Des Moines and Mason City Iowa also.
They will be making 30 stops in five different states urging people to vote for pro-life candidates.
