IOWA NOW'S JUDICIAL BYPASS FUND
Since 2004, Iowa NOW has funded abortions, at clinics in Des Moines and Iowa City, for young women who have successfully negotiated the "judicial bypass" exception to Iowa's Parental Notification law. Although the State of Iowa is obligated to pay the cost of the legal process, the minor must find a way to pay for
the procedure itself. Iowa NOW's Judicial Bypass Fund was established to assist these young women.
