    Ob-Gyns Tell Congress: Don’t Turn Back the Clock on Women’s Health

    Six hundred ob-gyns are in Washington, D.C., today to meet with their members of Congress and deliver a firm message: Don’t turn back the clock on women’s health. Members of The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the nation’s largest professional membership organization for women’s health care physicians, are urging a NO vote on the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Last week, ACOG outlined concerns with how the AHCA will affect women’s access to health care coverage, and yesterday the Congressional Budget Office issued a report confirming many of those concerns —estimating 14 million fewer Americans will have health care coverage in 2018 and 24 million by 2026. We cannot afford the devastating effect this will have on the health and well-being of all Americans, especially women and families.
