Sarah Hyland is NOT happy about the GOP’s birth control mandate rollback
Let’s be real: It’s not like Donald Trump has ever been favored by women per se. But his most recent bill passing left countless females in a rage. Actress Sarah Hyland expressed frustration about Donald Trump’s contraception laws on Twitter — and she wasn’t the only one.
Trump’s birth control mandate rollback is not to be taken lightly. On Friday, the “fake news” commentator repealed the requirement that employers need to include birth control coverage in employees’ health insurance plans.
Previously, Obama passed a law under the Affordable Care Act requiring employers to include birth control in their health coverage plans. Trump has taken that away on the grounds of protecting “religious freedom and moral sensibilities.”
And Hyland has some thoughts.
The Modern Family actress, among other numerous powerful women, took to Twitter to express their distaste for the immediate decision that could possibly affect 120,000 women across the U.S.
But, alas, there’s always at least one idiot who wants to respond out of context. The original tweet has been deleted, but Hyland’s response lives on. The clapback is real.
Hyland summed up our feelings perfectly with a Friends GIF.
The hashtag #HandsOffMyBC began to trend with the whirlwind of responses from others.
And others began to speak up as well.
Lena Dunham included.
Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, made a statement about Trump’s decision in respect to the overall liberties of a woman.
We’re grateful to those who use their platform to fight for good.
