It is unclear what will happen to the Affordable Care Act, and in particular, what affect policy changes might have on women’s health post-election. 

Right now, women have access to low-cost birth control and other preventative care, but that may change. Additionally, Trump has said he would cut federal funding for Planned Parenthood, despite the fact it provides services for millions of women.

Sarah Kliff from Vox discussed these potential changes and what it means for the women who rely on these services.
