Let's have a conversation about #healthcare that's larger than who pays for it shall we? For this thread I'm going to assume we can pass #MedicareForAll and insurance is no longer an issue. Now let's talk about what problems would still exist for women's healthcare /1
In this scenario #Medicare4All has been passed with the repeal of #Hyde so we don't have a problem funding abortions for anyone! But wait...does that overturn #TRAP laws? Waiting periods? Personhood bills? Heartbeat bills? 20 week bans? Specifically fund Planned Parenthood /2
Unfortunately #MedicareForAll wouldn't overturn all those pesky anti abortion laws meaning abortion would be insured if (and that's a big if) you have access to it. The reason you need Planned Parenthood still is because not all doctors choose to perform abortion /3
Ok moving on. Would #MedicareForAll cover #fertility treatments? #IVF? #HPV vaccine? Lactation help? Treatment and trials for endometriosis? Don't just assume it will. Government funded healthcare has to approve funding things beyond basic treatment /4
How would a #MedicareForAll bill address #maternalmortality issues? Maternal mortality is the highest in the US of any developed nation and its high across income and insurance levels (but highest among black women) so increasing insurance coverage wont address it /5
Women are 50% more likely to be the victim of a medical mistake, 90% of women report doctors not believing their chronic pain issues, and women STILL aren't always included in drug trials. How will #MedicareForAll help? /6
While discussing #healthcare we MUST stop treating #MedicareForAll a magic fix for all healthcare issues. #reproductiverights are about more than insuring #abortion is covered. When candidates talk about their healthcare platform we must demand they address more than insurance
