As a ”life specialist” (read: breast cancer survivor), I still have the freedom to live anywhere and work anywhere in the US, knowing that if cancer ever returned, my insurance would still help me, rather than disqualifying my coverage as a ”preexisting condition.”

[While I'm sharing stories, I want to add that Planned Parenthood was an essential resource to me when I was in my 20s. During those years when I was making $2.85/hour (because I was waiting tables, they paid us under the $3.35 minimum wage in 1984, assuming a certain amount of tips - which we didn't always get), THANK GOODNESS for PP helping me get access to birth control on a sliding scale. I took the help until my earnings grew to the point I didn't need it any more. Thank you so much.]
