In an op-ed with the New York Times, Lena Dunham calls it "disastrous" that President Trump will roll back Obama's contraceptive mandate. She also says for some women, “jeopardizing their ability to work and provide for their families.”
She goes in depth discussing her own gynecological problems. She ripped any change, even those that would allow freedom for some religious employers. These include the freedom to not offer contraception, abortion-inducing drugs, and even sterilization.

My @nytimes op-ed on the proposed birth control coverage rollbacks is in print and online now. Women should have access to any kind of contraception they want, any time they want, without pushback from their employers or insurers. But what about the fact that hormonal BC keeps many of us healthy, in the work force and out of this position? We have the power to let our representatives know that enough is enough. We are the NO LONGER SILENT majority. Take action. And yeah, I am this extra hot every time I'm in an ER with pelvic pain 🔥
Lena Dunham stresses that contraception is not the only reason birth control pills are prescribed.
“Birth control pills are many women’s method of choice for preventing unintended pregnancy and should be covered by all insurance policies for that reason alone,” Dunham says before continuing, “millions of women living with endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, cystic acne, migraines, uterine abnormalities and a history of ectopic pregnancies, birth control can be a crucial, even lifesaving, medical treatment.”
When she continues, she ripped the Trump administration.
If the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress succeed in stripping funding from Planned Parenthood and giving employers carte blanche to deny women necessary medication under murky notions of moral disdain, all paths to health and wellness will disappear for a huge swath of Americans.
Remember that Catholic teachings conflict with the usage of birth control. Lena Denham does not matter, Catholic hospitals should still provide birth control, in her mind.
Dunham is trying as hard as she can to prop up Planned Parenthood. Why? Because their days of being funded by taxpayers appear to be getting to the end of the line.
How does Lena Dunham get a national platform to provide her views on birth control? Oh, that's right, because the New York Times is pushing as far left as possible. This proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that the main agenda for the New York Times is to keep pushing further and further left.
