    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."

    Unintended Pregnancy Prevention is Essential to Women’s Health

    “The Administration’s highly unusual decision to abruptly negate a five-year agreement with current Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program (TPPP) grantees is a step backward for ensuring healthy moms and healthy babies. This program, and others, provide vital research and programming that successfully brought our Nation to an all-time low rate of teen pregnancies – progress we cannot afford to jeopardize."

    ACOG: The BCRA Cannot Be Fixed

    “This most recent version of the Better Care Reconciliation Act is not “better” for patients. The BCRA is deeply flawed, cannot be fixed and keeps getting worse. Its original version deliberately stripped landmark women’s health gains made by the Affordable Care Act, turning back the clock on women’s health. This new version threatens to leave patients with preexisting conditions without care. Senators drafting these proposals still aren’t listening to America’s doctors. Yesterday, ACOG joined leaders representing 560,000 frontline physicians on Capitol Hill with one unified message to Senators: the BCRA is dangerous for patients and must be rejected.
