So about that contraception access...

The House passing the controversial American Health Care Act yesterday has left many wondering how the hell they're going to pay for, well, anything. Considering the multitude of things—including rape and domestic abuse—that the AHCA lists as pre-existing conditions (which insurance companies would be able to deny you coverage for), Trumpcare has sparked outrage across the country.

Here's some more anger fodder: Under the AHCA, insurers would charge $17,320 more in premiums for pregnant individuals. Translation? Being pregnant will be 425% more expensive under the new healthcare plan than it is under Obamacare, according to Center for American Progress.

Given the current administration's take on abortion rights (against 'em, for those of you keeping score at home), it seems logical that more and more pregnancies will have to be carried to term—and women, it seems, will have to pay for it. In every sense.
