The administration is trying to gut Medicaid, which provides health insurance coverage for those who can’t afford it.

Medicaid provides health coverage to more than 70 million people with low incomes, most of whom are women. Without it, millions of people couldn’t access basic health services like prenatal care, birth control, and STD testing.

1 in 5 reproductive-age women are covered by Medicaid.

Due to systemic barriers, about one-third of Black women and a quarter of Latinas ages 15 to 44 are enrolled in Medicaid, compared to 14 percent of white women.
