2017 February 11

ACA Impact on Women Fact Sheet Social Media Toolkit

 Under a new president and Congress, lawmakers have vowed to push forward with a repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), jeopardizing the healthcare coverage of nearly 1 million Ohioans. If the ACA is repealed without a viable replacement, Ohio women stand to lose access to affordable healthcare coverage and vital services for reproductive, preventative, and primary health.

The Ohio Women’s Public Policy Network created a fact sheet to show how women have benefited from the ACA, and what exactly is at stake if it is repealed. The fact sheet is available online as a PDF.
