    ACOG Applauds Defeat of Dangerous Health Care Legislation

    “America averted a crisis of epic proportions last night when the U.S. Senate rejected the so called ‘skinny repeal’ bill – a vote that will hopefully press the reset button on what has been a rushed, disorganized, and uninformed attempt at crafting legislation impacting millions of Americans."

    ACOG: Senate Vote to Proceed Endangers Patients

    “The U.S. Senate is playing a very dangerous game with the health care of millions of Americans. Today’s vote to proceed sets our nation on a path that endangers our patients, and cripples the health care delivery system. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) opposes both the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) and repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which would leave millions without health care coverage."

    ACOG: ACA Repeal Would Devastate the Health of America’s Women and Families

    “The Better Care Reconciliation Act is terrible for women’s health, and repeal is even worse. It’s not worth a minute of serious consideration.  It will not help patients or improve our nation’s health care system.  Repeal is a desperate political gamble with patients’ health to score an empty political point."

    Affordable Care Act Repeal Without Replacement Harms Patients

    “Consistent with our steadfast opposition to any legislation that would leave our patients worse off, we oppose any effort by the U.S. Senate to repeal the ACA’s Medicaid expansion, premium and cost-sharing subsidies, and other coverage and consumer protections. We support a bipartisan and transparent process to develop consensus on improvements to current law that would close gaps in coverage."
