Ivanka Trump has repeatedly pitched herself as a champion of women's issues,an ally who is dedicated to securing equal pay,保证产假，而且，一般来说，赋予妇女充分的潜能。她对这些问题充满热情，她说，现在，作为总统助理she supposedly has her father's ear to influence his policy decisions.
例子:Politico's recent report第一个女儿安排了一次与美国计划生育联合会主席秘密会面Cecile Richards.目的是看看他们是否能在堕胎问题上达成某种相互理解（这只是卫生保健组织提供的众多服务之一）。因为伊万卡是一位坚决支持生命的总统的女儿，这消息引起了意外。更令人困惑的是：伊万卡本人从未公开谈论过这个组织，be it to commend or criticize them.
计划生育确认魅力伊万卡在就职典礼后不久与理查兹举行了一次“亲切而信息丰富的会议”，讨论医疗保健提供者在数百万美国妇女福祉中所扮演的角色。Among the topics of discussion: how,exactly,该组织从联邦政府获得资金。尽管是共和党人，就像伊万卡的父亲，已经要求取消计划生育，the term "defund" is not wholly accurate.计划生育没有预算拨款；它的资金来源于医疗补助的偿还，这与医生从私人医疗保健提供者那里获得资金的方式相同。但自从伊万卡一再声称她是亲女性，of course,the organization agreed to sit down with the woman who's been called the President's eyes and ears.
"Planned Parenthood welcomes the opportunity to meet with anyone to talk about the important role Planned Parenthood plays in providing health care to millions of people and ensure they have the facts," the organization said in a statement.“白宫的高级职员，包括伊万卡·特朗普，在制定政府政策和与国会谈判中发挥重要作用，which has a profound impact on women's health and lives."
理查兹在4月5日的座谈会上说：“他们以一种比我想象中更为严厉的方式攻击我们，攻击妇女。”"Anyone who works in this White House is responsible for addressing why women are in the crosshairs of basically every single policy we've seen in this administration."
Ivanka's decision to never speak publicly about women's health and her stance on Planned Parenthood seems like a deliberately measured omission.She and her husband,Jared Kushner在他们成为华盛顿特区之前，在纽约市的社交圈里享有相当自由的名声。insiders.And for all of her talk about "wanting to make a positive impact," an obvious way to do so is by supporting one of the foremost public health providers in the United States.甚至她父亲也有过glowing words to sayabout Planned Parenthood's preventive services when he isn't calling it an "abortion factory" and threatening to defund it.Though《纽约时报》报道伊万卡告诉她父亲在竞选期间要“小心”计划生育，她仍然不愿意分享自己的想法，也没有被注意到。
