By 2013, the number of women receiving birth control, cancer screenings, and other essential health care dropped by almost 30,000. They set up a task force that ultimately determined that without Medicaid funds, four of Planned Parenthood's 12 Iowan clinics would be unable to operate.

"This is good news for families in the state of Iowa", Maggie DeWitte, director of Iowans for Life, said in a statement. Plus, Tomlonovic wondered, "Is it going to take us six weeks to get you in ... for what we consider very time-sensitive services?"

Abortion restrictions were implemented further this year with a bill signed by Branstad to prevent most abortions in Iowa beyond a woman's 20th week of pregnancy. The waiting period has been temporarily halted amid a legal challenge. This new legislation cuts about $2 million in state money to Planned Parenthood, which the organization emphasized would affect services like birth control, emergency contraception and testing for sexually transmitted diseases. "And instead what they are doing is, in order to target abortion providers, they have made a decision to stop accepting Medicaid dollars for family planning services and create their own, 100 percent state-funded family planning program specifically to preclude abortion providers from participating", she told Jezebel over the phone.

The Center for Medical Progress videos strengthened efforts to defund the abortion provider, which has received about $500 million in federal funding each year for non-abortion services.
