I would love to be able to pick a plan that doesn't cover birth control, pregnancy, and delivery, as my birthing years are long past.
Unfortunately, the ACA says all plans must cover birth control to be a Qualified Health Plan. Otherwise, the employer and insured would still be fined annually for not having suitable coverage.

I would say cable is a bad example, as their days are numbered and you can already get hundreds of channels a la carte as you wish through these new internet streaming devices like Roku. Perhaps the same will happen to insurance? I sure hope so.
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."

Everyone should have the right to use birth control. However, maybe we need to encourage more middle class births in the USA: freedomfromconscience.wordpress.com...
One's greatest impact is through their family line surviving and thriving. Economies and national governments come and go, but the one thing that can, and must, continue is our family.
I am concerned that an IUD might not be the best choice for some women though...
we are all built differently and what might be the right choice for one women, might just be a bad choice for another, maybe even dangerous.

you need to actually go and read a little about late term abortions, who has them and why....
you might find a few surpises.
I'm quite educated on the topic as I did my college paper on Abortion. So don't talk down to me.
He just may not support late term abortion, but who would?
President Donald Trump's administration has abruptly halted ads and outreach for Obamacare set to run during the final days of the 2017 open enrollment season, according to a report published Thursday by Politico.
Even ads that President Barack Obama's administration already placed and paid for have been pulled, Politico reported, citing sources at the Department of Health and Human Services and on Capitol Hill. The White House has also reportedly halted media outreach promoting enrollment, including emails sent to visitors to HealthCare.gov.
The final days of the open enrollment period are "seen as critical," according to the report. This is due to a last-minute surge in sign-ups by individuals who procrastinate on enrollment, particularly younger and healthier customers.
Open enrollment for 2017 ends next week on Jan. 31.
