Unfortunately, the American Health Care Act
would disallow all federal funds to Planned Parenthood — including Medicaid payments, which would disproportionately affect poor women and families, who are often minorities
. The AHCA has passed through the House of Representatives, and now it awaits debate and a vote in the Senate. President Trump has indicated he wants to sign this bill, which means Planned Parenthood is precariously close to losing crucial funding. Kim discusses this on her Instagram caption,
noting that it will also raise health care costs. “They are such an amazing place that provides so much to so many!”, she says, and the numbers agree: in 2014, Planned Parenthood saw an estimated 2.7 million patients
in 2013 alone. It just goes to show how many women and people of all gender identities use their services today.
