Congressman Eliot Engel Denounces Trump for Rolling Back Contraception Coverage PDF Print Email

alt


By Bryant Daniels, Director of Public Affairs, Office of Congressman Eliot L. Engel


Oct. 11, 2017:  Congressman Eliot L. Engel issued the following points on President Trump's decision to allow employers to omit coverage for contraception from their workers' plans:

  • The Affordable Care Act (ACA) increased access to affordable birth control for millions of American women. Under the ACA, insurers are required to cover birth control at no cost. We cannot roll back this progress. But that's exactly what President Trump's shameful new interim final rule will do. 

  • This interim final rule gives bosses, health plans, and schools veto power over women's health care choices by refusing to cover birth control. Curtailing access to birth control means curtailing women's ability to control their own health and bodies. It also means jeopardizing their health and economic well-being. 

  • House Republicans continually vote to ban abortion and defund Planned Parenthood, and today's decision by the president is just another example of the GOP's ongoing war on women. 

  • Women and couples use contraceptives to have healthier pregnancies, to plan their families, and to treat conditions like endometriosis. Birth control is health care. This rule is just the latest move by the administration and Republican-controlled Congress to roll back health care--and my fellow Democrats and I are going to fight back.

The "roll back" is limited to employers which can demonstrate "sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions" such as The Little Sisters of the Poor which took their case to the Supreme Court.The vast majority of employers will be required to maintain the original mandate.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
