Destiny Lopez Responds to Paul Ryan Obamacare Claims

On Thursday, January 12, Speaker Paul Ryan falsely claimed that the affordable care act includes funding for abortion servicesDestiny Lopez

Co-Director of All* Above All, issued the following statement:

“Once again, speaker Ryan is peddling in myths and misinformation to justify his agenda of dismantling healthcare Americans depend on. Unfortunately and unjustly, the Hyde amendment bans coverage for abortion for women enrolled in Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Act actually doubled down on abortion coverage bans in both public and private insurance. It would be better for women’s health if abortion was covered for all women, however they are insured, but that is simply not the case. It’s time for anti-woman politicians to stop lying about abortion coverage to ‘cover up’ their real motives of making healthcare unaffordable to all but a privileged few.”
