Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones' court declaration provides overwhelming evidence of immediate harms from Trump order denying women access to contraceptives
November 10, 2017 - SACRAMENTO, Calif. - "Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, health insurance policies must cover contraceptives without any co-pays or deductibles.
President Trump's new rule would allow employers to interfere with women's constitutionally protected right to make their own health care decisions by allowing employers to deny women access to contraceptives.
Access to contraceptives is key to giving women control over their reproductive health which in turn impacts all aspects of their lives.
I have talked with women who could not always afford to fill their prescriptions before the ACA made contraceptives available without cost.
We will not stand by and let President Trump get in the way of women being able to make fundamental decisions about reproductive health care for themselves.
President Trump's rule, if allowed to stand, will deprive women of their rights, while increasing the number of unintended pregnancies and abortions.
Every resource at our disposal should be used to fight President Trump's unconstitutional infringement upon a women's access to contraceptives." Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones
