Women's Health Coalition Letter Opposing ACA Repeal, Planned Parenthood Defunding

The ACLU and other organizations committed to advancing the health and economic security of women and their families sent this letter to Congressional leadership, expressing opposition to repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and defunding Planned Parenthood. Voting to repeal the law, or significant portions of it, would put the health, well-being, and economic security of women in jeopardy. It would take health insurance away from millions of women and leaving them without affordable coverage options, jeopardize access to key preventive services (including birth control), halt the progress toward reducing racial and ethnic health disparities, and roll back important gains in ensuring women’s access to a robust set of benefits under their insurance plans.
