COLUMBIA, Mo. – Following President Trump’s decision to roll back protections for women’s access to no-copay birth control, Missouri Democratic Party Chair Stephen Webber issued the following statement:
“Birth control is not controversial — it’s something the vast majority of women will use during their lifetime. It is unacceptable for Missouri’s Congressional Republicans to stand idly by while the Trump Administration attacks women’s access to basic healthcare.”
- According to NPR, “The Trump administration is rolling back the Obama-era requirement that employer-provided health insurance policies cover birth control methods at no cost to women.”
- Supporting policies that make it easier for those 18 and older to get the full range of birth control methods is favored by 86% of adults, including over 80% of Republicans.
