Trump ran an aggressively anti-choice campaign and said he’d defund Planned Parenthood. He chose a running mate, Mike Pence, so devoted to crushing reproductive rights that he once signed a law that would require women to bury or cremate their aborted fetuses. On top of that, he’s vowed to repeal Obamacare. Though it’s unclear exactly what that would look like, the Affordable Care Act currently requires insurance companies to provide free access to contraception.
The GOP platform's position on "The Sanctity and Dignity of Human Life" reads, "Faithful to the 'self-evident' truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed."

Yes, thank you, you're right. However, if the GOP gets its way, many of those forms, the IUD, Plan B, implants and The Pill will become illegal. As they create a hostile environment to the fertilized egg, preventing implantation. That would violate the
Sanctity of life and Dignity of the unborn"!
Will Trump make good on his promise to punish women who abort or use forbidden contraception methods?

Oh please, they are not going to make birth control pills illegal.
We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.
