US women to get IUD birth control before Trump’s inauguration

American women, who fear a possibility of crackdown on reproductive rights, urged others on social media to get an Intra Uterine Device (IUD) contraceptive fitted before president-elect Donald Trump came into power.

During his campaign, Trump vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act or Obama Care, a law under which birth control is provided for free to women with health insurance.

Obama Care helped millions of women with low-income to protect themselves using hormonal methods, IUDs and emergency contraception.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, leader of the Trump campaign’s pro-life coalition, opposes the use of emergency contraception, including morning-after pill and Copper IUD.

Also, Trump’s vice president-elect Mike Pence has been leading the fight against reproductive rights for half a decade, The Intercept reports.

He could also stop the reproductive health organisation ‘Planned Parenthood’ from receiving the $500 million a year it is funded from the government. This would make it significantly harder for the organisation to help women who choose to use birth control.

In 2007, Pence introduced the first amendment to defund Planned Parenthood, Newsweek reports.

Thousands of women lashed out on social media against the Republican attempt to curb their sexual rights.
