    ACOG Urges Senate to Reject the Better Care Reconciliation Act

    “ACOG is deeply disappointed by the Senate’s proposed Better Care Reconciliation Act.

If enacted, this legislation will turn back the clock on women’s health."

    ACOG Urges Trump Administration Not to Turn Back the Clock on Women’s Health

    “ACOG, the nation’s largest professional organization for women’s health care physicians, denounces the interim final rule currently under review at the Office of Management and Budget. According to the leaked document, the Trump Administration is preparing to wipe away landmark protections for America’s women and families by rolling back no-copay contraceptive coverage. ACOG stands firm in opposition to this extremely regrettable decision to turn back the clock on women’s health. This Administration should focus on improving access to quality health care for women and for all Americans. This new rule does the opposite.
