Eshoo Statement on Trump Administration Assault on Women’s Contraceptive Coverage

October 6th, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C— Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement after the Trump Administration moved to end the federal requirement for employers to cover basic contraception in their health insurance plans.

“Since President Trump’s first day in office, his administration and Republicans in Congress have relentlessly attacked the reproductive rights and access to health care for women. Today’s announcement from the Administration eliminating birth control coverage in the Affordable Care Act is no different. 62 million women have benefited from the birth control coverage and because of this expanded access, the rate of unintended pregnancies and abortion is at a 40-year low.

“Shame on the President for this dangerous rule that sets our country backward and limits a woman’s right to health care.”
