Misogynist Policy-Low Income Women to Lose Access to Critical Health Services
Our mothers, sisters, wives and girlfriends, our daughters and nieces. Only a certain income protects them from what honestly is best described as a deliberately harsh and cold policy.
But… Why? Are these guys that desperate to cut that tiny bit of budget as deficit hawks? Tax cut extremists? I do not think so. It’s a dominance play. It’s a quiet assault. It’s a pushback favored by marital rapist Donald Trump and incels.
On NPR’s Morning Edition on Friday, Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood, told Steve Inskeep: “I think, really, the chilling thing about what they’re proposing now is it removes the guarantee that women in particular are getting full and accurate information about their health care from their doctor. This is absolutely extraordinary that we would now be gagging doctors and health care providers from giving women their legal information and even referring them for potentially livesaving health care.”
She said the rule change would mean that if a pregnant women with cancer came in, “her health care provider could refuse to tell her that abortion is legal, that it’s even an option.”
