Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa plans to fight a ruling in northwest Iowa over the confidentiality of pregnancy records at its Storm Lake clinic. This week, district judge Frank Nelson ruled the agency must turn over by August 17th records requested by the Buena Vista County Sheriff’s Department. The records are being sought in connection with the investigation of the death of a newborn baby, discovered May 30th at the Harold Rowley Recycling Center south of Storm Lake. The department has requested the names, addresses, and birth dates of women whose pregnancy tests were positive at the Storm Lake clinic between August 15th and May 30th. Planned Parenthood official Jill June says they will appeal the decision to the Iowa Supreme Court, saying the records are confidential.
