COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Women across the country are expressing concern about birth control now that Donald Trump is the President-elect.

Throughout his campaign, Trump promised to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which mandates that insurers provide coverage for all FDA-approved birth control methods without co-payment or co-insurance.

Without that mandate, women may have to pay for their birth control.

Following the announcement of Trump’s victory in the election, women from all over shared their thoughts on social media regarding the uncertainty of what lies ahead for birth control.

Neither Trump no Congress has revealed a detailed plan of what would replace the ACA.

In September, Trump said he is not in favor of requiring a prescription to purchase birth control.

For now, the Affordable Care Act is still in effect and enrollment will continue until January 31.
