How Trump Threatens a Woman’s Right to Reproductive Health Care

How Trump Threatens a Woman’s Right to Reproductive Health Care

Faced with President-elect Trump's threat to repeal the Affordable Care Act, women must consider long-term options for contraceptives.

The Affordable Care Act, or ACA, has provided millions of women with access to reproductive health care. Now, with President-elect Donald Trump taking office, America faces the possibility that he will follow through on his threat to repeal the ACA. Women must consider long-term options for contraceptives—such as the intrauterine device, or IUD, or the patch—to protect their right to reproductive health care in Trump’s America.
