Repealing the Affordable Care Act Would Jeopardize Women's Health

Maternity Care

Obamacare required that individual and employer insurance plans covered maternity care. If it gets repealed, the insurance companies could easily decide to withdraw that, putting both mothers and their babies in danger of complications. The ACA repeal could also affect on the birthrate, if women wait to get pregnant until they've got everything sorted out. If you got pregnant and lost your insurance, it could be difficult to get onto another plan, as pregnancy can be classified as a preexisting condition. Take a minute to let that sink in — women might actually need to hold off on having children in order to make sure that they'll get the right healthcare coverage during their pregnancies.
