Trump Contradictions on Women’s Health WeekMay 15, 2017 |

Mother’s Day marks the start of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Women’s Health Week. With a stated goal of “[empowering] women to make their health a priority,” Women’s Health Week aims to focus on some of the unique health issues women face, including maternal health.
As the program is an official government policy, President Trump released an email statement supporting Women’s Health Week. But the statement seems strangely preoccupied with not detailed studies about women’s health, but instead with the larger Republican campaign to push their version of healthcare.
