This petition is to support to not repeal the Affordable Care Act, as well as to help fellow Americans to gain insight on how detrimental repealing this law is, so that there are more efforts that will be placed to ensure that the Affordable Care Act stays in legislation. The Affordable Care Act has ensured nearly 20 million Americans to have access to healthcare since 2010, when it was signed by President Barrack Obama. Under the Affordable Care Act, Americans have a larger access to quality preventative health care options nationwide. Preventative care is important in treating diseases, illnesses and even cancer in earlier stages. Preventative care is important now more than ever for those who are poverty stricken by targeting an illness or disease earlier on which allows them to receive the proper medical care. If the ACA is to be appealed, millions of Americans will lose their insurance benefits as well as their rights for quality medical services.

In consideration, the Affordable Care Act has made major changes towards big insurance companies. For example, insurance companies are no longer allow penalize nor deny coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. This is a major issue for women who are pregnant as well as individuals diagnosed with medical conditions such as diabetes. In relations to women, they are no longer paying more than men. Preventative care such as mammograms are extremely important in women’s health issues because early detections of breast cancer saves thousands of lives!

If you already have an insurance plan that you wish to keep, the ACA protects your choice of sticking with that insurance plan. You won’t face penalties if you choose to do so. As for Medicaid, if you have coverage under it and wish to stay on it, you can. Medicaid expansion has expanded tremendously under the ACA. Medicaid has expanded eligibility to 133% of the poverty level and has allowed 1.1 million more people to be covered in healthcare and currently expanding coverage across states.

Supporting the Affordable Care Act is the best medical, financial, and moral decision for this country. By repealing the ACA, you as well as legislators are ignoring marginalized American’s. This inhumane act will cause millions to not have access to a universal human right. We have the right to speak up about issues that matter and that will protect and provide American’s basic human rights. A lack of coverage negatively impacts American’s wellbeing. Having quality affordable health care protects our communities physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Repealing the ACA will harm our country. It will cause lower income citizens, our elders, our sick, to be marginalized. We can’t let this happen.

If you are in favor of the ACA, sign this petition. If you are in favor for protecting basic human rights, sign this petition. If you are tired of big insurances robbing American’s of affordable coverage, sign this petition. If you believe American’s should have access to health care, sign this petition.
