AN OPEN LETTER TO THE WELLNESS AND LIFE COACHING INDUSTRIES - YOUR SILENCE ABOUT HEALTHCARE IS DISHEARTENING...BUT ITS NOT TOO LATE TO SPEAK UP.
Today a bill passed the congress that stripped 24 million Americans of healthcare. They decided that basically being human - especially a woman - means that they can deny you healthcare. Pre-existing conditions include asthma, autoimmunity, having had a c-section, pregnancy, having been sexually assaulted or domestically abused, obesity, and the list goes on.
A friend of mine offered what I find the most accurate commentary on the terrifying decision.
“Capitalizing on health problems created by our own culture & environment while also using nationalist rhetoric is perhaps the darkest side of capitalism.” - Stephanie Pool
I'm sick to my stomach at the victim blaming, fat shaming, sexism, racism, classism, and just plain lack of humanity.
Its a war on women and on the American Dream.
And no, I don't feel I'm being dramatic.
