Let’s face it: health insurance is confusing, but you don’t have to figure it out alone. You can even get free, in-person help signing up and picking a plan at Planned Parenthood.
The Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) is still in effect, and will be unless there's a change in the law. That means that birth control — including IUDs and the implant — is still covered without a copay. And there's still time to get covered. In Minnesota, you can sign up for coverage until January 14, 2018.
Birth control is essential health care. The fact that we’re debating this in 2017 is demoralizing and preposterous.
It's here: the return of Trumpcare. In fact, it's the worst ACA repeal bill yet. And it is every bit as devastating to Planned Parenthood patients.
Here's what you need to know about the latest attempt to repeal the ACA and "defund" Planned Parenthood.
"So many people have claimed that there is no point calling their legislators because it won't do any good, and then you see constituents rallying and helping their lawmakers make the right decision. I think that's really inspiring.”
“In all of its various forms, this bill is the worst bill for women in a generation. From ending maternity coverage and the birth control benefit for millions to blocking women’s access to preventive care at Planned Parenthood, every version of Trumpcare has been devastating to women. And at every step of the process, this legislation has only gotten worse as Republican leaders have chipped away at women’s health and rights. The Senate must reject Trumpcare, or they will be responsible for putting millions of people's lives at risk. Trumpcare would leave tens of millions of people stranded without the essential health care they and their families depend on today.”
The Senate has voted to take up Trumpcare—the worst bill for women in a generation—but the fight for health care is not over. This bill is dangerous, devastating, and puts the health care of millions at risk. Here's what you can do to help Planned Parenthood right now.
