Who Is Katy Talento? Trump’s Health Care Policy Aide Has a Lot of Thoughts About Birth Control
Talento’s appointment to a prominent health care policymaking position within the Trump admin comes as Republicans gear up to strip federal funds from women’s reproductive health care provider Planned Parenthood, potential legislation on which Trump has vowed to sign off, according to The Washington Post. Another main goal of this presidency is to repeal President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, which makes it possible for millions of Americans to have health insurance in addition to making birth control, crucial preventive care, and maternity services accessible under individual insurance plans.
Employing Talento further exemplifies how serious Trump and his team are about undermining women’s bodily autonomy and limiting the availability of safe, effective forms of birth control.
