These illustrations depicting Disney Princesses being denied treatment in a world without the Affordable Healthcare Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) is downright heartbreaking.

The work of illustrator Maritza Lugo and writer Danielle Sepulveres, the images — shared on Instagram — depict the heartbreaking reality of an America without the ACA, a hotly debated issue during the recent election. The Trump administration has vowed to "repeal and replace" the act, which guaranteed access to health care to millions of Americans across the United States — but have yet to suggest a viable alternative.

Last night, while most of us slept, the Senate took it's major first steps in repealing Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act. This is not to be had. This is not to be tolerated. Millions of Americans like you & I depend on the ACA. Today, the New York Times wrote: "Republican leaders say they will work closely with Mr. Trump developing legislation to repeal and replace the health care law, but it is unclear exactly how his team will participate in that effort." We, as a nation, can not afford to lose the most accessible health care plan that we as a country have ever seen. We can't afford to see what Donald Trump's "plan" will be. Please call your representatives. Don't sit on the sidelines. #plannedparenthood #standwithpp #aca #illustration #maritzalugoart #disney #princesses #ariel #thelittlemermaid #artwork #art #disneyprincesses #fuckmitchmcconnell
