The cost of most birth control methods, including the pill, is covered by insurance companies under the Affordable Care Act. That could be repealed under a Trump administration.

As people are contemplating the real implications of a Trump presidency, women on social media are echoing one loud piece of advice: Make a plan for birth control now.

That's because Donald Trump has long vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act once he's in office. It would take 60 senators to vote in favor for a full repeal of the act. And there are other smaller things Trump could do to dismantle or change the ACA over time.
