Emma Goldman Clinic abortion clinic in Iowa City, Iowa
Emma Goldman Clinic offers first and second trimester abortions up to 19 weeks and 6 days since the woman’s last menstrual period. We believe that every woman has the right to determine the outcome of her pregnancy regardless of her age, marital status, race, or income.
The Emma Goldman Clinic is a not-for-profit independent organization founded in 1973 by a group of women driven by feminist ideals. We exist to empower women and men in all life stages through the provision of quality reproductive health care that includes abortion services, gynecology services, safer sex promotion, and active education. We promote respectful, client-centered and participatory health care through informed decision making, client rights, advocacy and expansion, and support of pregnancy choices.
We strive to provide an environment in which diversity is acknowledged and celebrated. We are actively committed to staff diversity in employment policies and practices. We strive to increase economic, geographic, structural, and language accessibility for the clients we serve through fundraising, outreach, and advocacy.
Emma Goldman Clinic offers non-judgmental, quality health care services. Our goals are inspired by our belief in the larger ideals of feminist philosophy: political, economic, and social equality.
Setting standards for care – We offer women comprehensive information about health issues and treatments, empowering them to make decisions for their ownhealth care. Once a woman has experienced this type of care, we believe she will expect the same standard of care from all health care providers for herself, her friends, and her family. In this way, we help make all health care providers more responsiveness to the needs of their clients, and therefore elevate universal standards of care.
