THREAD: #GrahamCassidy isn’t just bad for women's health - it’s catastrophic. Here are FIVE things you need to know:
1. #GrahamCassidy wld block care at @PPFA, leaving many w/ nowhere to turn for basic care like cancer screenings & birth control. #DoNoHarm
1 in 5 women rely on @PPFA. Over half of PPFA patients rely on Medicaid. 56% of PP clinics are in underserved areas. #DoNoHarm #SaveMedicaid
We’ve seen what happens on the state level when policies like this are in place. It’s devastating. #DoNoHarm #GrahamCassidy
2. #GrahamCassidy will force new moms to choose between being w/ their newborn or keeping their insurance. #DoNoHarm
That’s right - the bill will force people back to work only 60 days after they have a baby, or they lose their health insurance. #DoNoHarm
3. #GrahamCassidy will eliminate cvrg requirements for critical #reprohealth care, like birth control or maternity care, & drive premiums up
4. Women w/ pre-ex conditions-incl pregnancy, breast cancer, eating disorders, & C-section births-will be charged more, depending on state.
Before ACA, 65 mil women were considered to have a pre-ex condition. Insurance companies will again be allowed to charge them more #DoNoHarm
For many, this could mean your health insurance isn’t just more expensive - it’s completely out of reach. #DoNoHarm
5. #GrahamCassidy will force private plans to drop abortion cvrg almost immediately by blocking tax credits for plans including it #DoNoHarm
This would make plans that cover abortion almost IMPOSSIBLE for many to afford. #DoNoHarm #GrahamCassidy
If #GrahamCassidy becomes law, the impacts will be dire - esp for women of color. Call your Senator & tell them to vote NO: 1-866-665-4470

BREAKING: Kevin Williamson, who called for women who’ve had an abortion to be hanged, was just 𝗳𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗱 from @TheAtlantic in the face of mounting pressure from pro-choice activists, NARAL, @UltraViolet & the media. #FireKevin
Extremists like Kevin Williamson deserve condemnation—NOT a byline to espouse racist, misogynist, right-wing extremism. Normalizing violence against women who are making these important decisions about their own bodies & lives is unacceptable. #FireKevin
Calling for the death and punishment of 25% of American women is unconscionable. Yet men like Kevin Williamson are given the benefit of the doubt, second chances, and national platforms time and time again.
