Resist NOW: The President’s Tweeting (and taking away our birth control) – May 31, 2017
- Trump is coming for our birth control. It looks like Trump’s planning to propose a regulation that would upend the birth control mandate which required employers to provide insurance coverage for no-cost birth control. If implemented, almost any business would be able to deny their employees birth control coverage.That means any entity from universities to big corporations to small businesses can cite any moral or religious reason for not covering contraception, forcing women to pay out of pocket or simply be left without birth control.
- There are reports Trump will dump the Paris Climate Accord. Even though this act won’t dissolve the agreement intended to lower planet-warming emissions, there is fear it might cause a ripple effect. What’s clear is that without the full commitment of the U.S., things aren’t looking good for future generations – especially for women.
