Luján Statement on Trump Administration Decision to Roll Back Mandate for Birth Control Coverage

Congressman Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) today released the following statement after the Trump administration announced its decision to end the federal requirement for employers to cover basic contraception in their health insurance plans:

“Health care is a right, not a privilege. Since President Trump’s first day in office, the Administration and Republican-controlled Congress have relentlessly attacked women’s rights and access to care. President Trump’s latest attack would make contraception unaffordable for countless women. This is unacceptable and I will continue to fight for the rights of all women to have control over their personal medical decisions.”
