Schumer Statement on Trump Administration’s Move to Roll Back Access to Birth Control

October 6, 2017

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the below statement following the Trump Administration’s decision to roll back the Affordable Care Act birth control mandate:

“This outrageous decision rips a fundamental right away from millions of hard working women in the workplace, risking their access to the critical healthcare coverage they depend on and have earned. We have long turned the page on the days when a boss could stand in between a woman and her own healthcare decisions – this decision drags the country backwards. This decision is just the latest in a series of moves the Trump Administration has made to undermine and sabotage our health care system.”
