How Women Fare In The Health Care Bill

Jodi offers a good summary of what is currently known about the impact of the new bill on women in general and on various groups of women in particular.

She addresses both those parts of the bill which have to do with reproductive health care and also those parts which are not particularly aimed at women but which will have a bigger effect on women than on men because women are more likely to fall into particular categories (the poor, the elderly).

She lists both gains and losses. Note that both of those are in comparison to the existing patchwork of systems.
