After President-elect Donald Trump's victory, NPR reported that some reproductive health centers and OB-GYN offices experienced an increase in inquiries about long term birth control. That increase reflects concern that the Affordable Care Act may be repealed or altered, making some birth control more expensive or harder to come by. Add in the Republican threat of defunding Planned Parenthood and Trump's pledge to appoint pro-life Supreme Court justices and many people are wondering about the future of reproductive rights under a Trump administration.
