With specter of President Trump, who vowed to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal the ACA, that now covers contraception, and with a predominately Republican Congress and House whose party platform promises to make abortion illegal by bestowing constitutional rights on the unborn, chances are that after January 21st, 2017, your access to contraception may be cut off!


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.
www.huffingtonpost.com...


Once again women will be required to pay extra for their insurance, and employers will decide if birth control should be covered or not for their employees, regardless of "closely held religious beliefs.


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."
www.newsbusters.org...


Title X will become meaningless.

Now, Trump has said that he would, against GOP policy, allow exception for rape, incest and the life of the mother. So, no sanctity or dignity of life for the unborn conceived in rape or incest......but no consideration for the autonomy of the woman.

To be clear, the GOP's position on "The Sanctity and Dignity of Human Life", if enacted, will bar many forms of birth control, like the Plan B, IUD and The Pill, that prevent a fertilized egg from implanting by "sickening" the uterine walls, but will make all abortion on demand illegal across the country, regardless of "States' Rights".

This is real ladies. Make an appoint ASAP. An IUD can last up to 10 years, and I doubt Trump and the GOP will gain the right to force you to "rip it out". But, you never know!

One thing to keep in mind, there are various forms of birth control. implants that last for years, coils inserted that stop pregnancy without the need for drugs or anything that work until you have it removed, the pill of course, and a host of other options.

just felt like stating that.


I would like to see a day after pill here.

(Add: the sanctity of human life is something discussed when discussing abortion. the pill prevents fertilization, therefore no life. same with other forms of contraception. same with plan B. prevents fertilization)

My word!

You would have thought no woman anywhere ever got her abortions or had any birth control prior to Obamacare!

How did we poor, put upon women manage it?

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?

Damn. Fear Mongering already?
The sky is falling! The sky is falling! This is on the same level as those who claimed Obama would ban guns. The ACA should be repealed and replaced. It's been a train wreck from the start.

Ummm, many of those things were perfectly legal and had been for years prior to Obamacare.

What people don't want is to be forced to pay for an insurance policy that covers those things if they personally feel that way.

That's very different from outlawing those things for all.

But it does give me a very good insight into your own mindset.

alert alert we are losing free stuff alert alert.

Meanwhile unless you have great insurance asthma inhalers are $200 a month. a real necessity unlike disrupting the natural female cycle or needing it for unprotected sex.

Added a thing, but will repeat
most of those other things prevent fertilization, which isn't considered a lifeform (the same way a condom isn't an abortion). no fertilization = no life regardless of what your belief is.

Saying its a possibility of life is like saying masturbation is half an abortion.

Planned Parenthood existed before the ACA. It may not exist next year.

Oh please, they are not going to make birth control pills illegal.

And it seems like if the helath care plans from Trump are successful, you will have options for your insurance, meaning y9u can pick one that will cover it.

If not,


For patients not covered by health insurance, birth control pills typically cost $20 to $50 a month


health.costhelper.com...

This freakout for $20 a month? Please.

They pay for your health insurance. Birth control happens to be one of the things included with that if you choose to take them up on it.

Why should your work be involved in what goes on between you and your Doctor???

I don't see anyone complaining about Men getting Viagra through their Health Insurance.

No actually. I seem to recall ... *gasp* having insurance that covered my birth control. But before that, we simply got the prescription and paid for it out of pocket. I know that $10/month is a toughie ...


But the part people seem to not grasp is that all of this was before Obamacare made it possible for me to have insurance cover it. How could that be? According to the OP, this was not possible before Obamacare.

Oh yes they will, if they get their way. Those methods of birth control that create a hostile environment for a fertilized egg will become collateral damage in preparing the way for the sanctified fertilized egg!


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.

This is exactly the sort of ridiculous falsehood that lost you guys what little respect you may have ever had.

It's like saying that the second amendment is defunct because the state won't force my employer to pay for my firearms, exactly.

Absolutely pathetic.

No. I said many.

But I seriously doubt that anyone is going to see abortion made completely illegal anytime soon. At most, you might see Roe v Wade overturned, but that would simply send it back to the states, not outlaw it.

But you act like that it's your right to have it payed for. Health benefits just like any other benefit that your job offer is a benefit, not a right. If your work chooses not cover things that you like you can always find another job, that's part of free market competition.

Prohibition of anything has never worked, even abortion. If Trump appoints someone who reverses Roe V Wade it's just forcing it back underground to the horrible conditions it used to be in.

Nothing will change except for more deaths. That and a whole new bootleg birth control pill industry with people putting god knows what in them. Enriching criminals and probably a lot of people in government.
