If the Graham-Cassidy bill passes and replaces the Affordable Care Act, women throughout the US will lose access to maternity care. The most recent Trumpcare proposal is a clear attack on women, and once again, Ivanka Trump, who's an advisor to the president, has yet to do anything about it.
What makes this even more frustrating is her most recent interview, in which she discussed having postpartum depression. According to Someecards, one gynecologist perfectly summed up why Ivanka trying to raise awareness for postpartum depression is pointless.
Ivanka went on "The Dr.Oz Show" to discuss the effects of postpartum depression.
Ivanka told Dr. Oz, "With each of my children, I had some level of postpartum depression. It was a very challenging, emotional time for me because I felt like I was not living up to my potential as a parent or as an entrepreneur and executive."
She then went on to point out that the illness affects many parents. This is true, and it's important to bring awareness to the issue.
However, if Ivanka really wanted to help, she would acknowledge how the new Trumpcare legislation will make it impossible for many parents to seek care.
One gynecologist expertly called out her hypocrisy.
Ivanka Trump, do you not see how going on Dr. Oz talking about your postpartum depression is a giant "fuck you" to American women?— Veronica Ades (@veroniac) September 22, 2017
