Millions will go without health care

July 26, 2017

To the editor:

This bill is the worst bill for women in a generation. In addition to "defunding" Planned Parenthood and slashing Medicaid, it guts essential health benefit protections, including maternity coverage and prescription drugs. Thirteen million women could lose coverage to maternity care under this bill and over a million patients will instantly lose access to care at Planned Parenthood health centers if this bill were to become law.

2.4 million patients a year come to Planned Parenthood for care, regardless of their ZIP code, income, sexual orientation, race, religion, gender or country or origin.

Shutting down Planned Parenthood would deny millions of patients access to its cancer screening, birth control, HIV testing, and more. If patients are blocked from care at Planned Parenthood, many would have nowhere else to go for health care.
