President Trump’s budget would cut Medicaid spending nearly in half and slash nearly $13 billion from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Medicaid covers more than 70 million Americans, including 40 percent of all children and nearly half of all births. Trump’s budget also calls for an end to all federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Dr. Diane Horvath-Cosper, a fellow at Physicians for Reproductive Health and an abortion provider in Maryland, joins host Lindsay Beyerstein to discuss the real-life consequences of these cuts.
