Stock Up IUD Birth Control Before Donald Trump Takes Office - Here's Why
A lot has changed on Tuesday since America decided to bring Donald Trump to the White House. There is a huge difference between how President Barack Obama and the GOP candidate deal with certain issues. One of the major issues that will suffer a change is IUD birth control.
Intrauterine devices have been growing in popularity in the United States. According to a new research, American women are opting more for such birth control measures. Obamacare spared women from out-of-pocket cost while going for 18 FDA-approved birth control types. But, there is every possibility it is going to change under the Trump presidency.
It is possible that birth control costs will rise high after Donald Trump takes office. Planned Parenthood, which serves 2.5 million people in a year, may also become costly. Abortions, STD testing and even cancer screening may be much more expensive. While it is unclear how Trump will handle such issues, there is an instant panic regarding the possible situation.
The concern is real because Republicans are eager to revoke Obamacare. Donald Trump focused on this during his presidential campaign. Mike Pence, the next vice president of the United States, is anti-abortion. He is also in favor of blocking federal funds from Planned Parenthood. Even Trump said he would stop funding if Planned Parenthood backed abortion.
So, American women have "70 days" to plan their future without spending extra. They may stock up IUD birth control in the coming days before the president-elect swears in on Jan. 20. According to Vogue, many women expressed their fear on social media about the growing cost of birth control. A lot of them are apparently going get IUDs before January. One of them said that she would stock up for four years, hinting at the tenure for the Trump presidency.
But, here is the silver lining. According to Ginny Ehrlich, pro-life leaders should support birth control since they are against abortion. IUD birth control should remain cheap in that case.
"The vast majority of the public across political parties, across demographic groups and across religious identities support birth control access for women," USA Today quoted the CEO of The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy as saying.
