You probably know I don’t think Obamacare is perfect. I’ve written about this in a previous emails, in a Deseret News op-ed, and on my website.

But it has done a lot of good, especially when it comes to women’s access to contraception:


Donald Trump’s terrifying Obamacare repeal attempt, supported by Paul Ryan and every Utah Republican in the House of Representatives, is designed in such a way that the gains listed in this chart will be reversed. Women will have to pay out of pocket for their contraception. Keep in mind that insurance companies have covered Viagra for men, but didn’t cover women’s contraception until Obamacare made them. The Republicans want us to go back to the good old days before Obamacare levelled the field.

As access to contraception increases, the abortion rate goes down!

So when conservatives express their concerns about the abortion rate, you can tell them they can thank their president for working overtime to make it go up. It’s that simple.

We can’t let this happen. Together, we can let Paul Ryan and Mia Love know that women deserve all the health care we need.
