Birth Control

Birth control is about equality for women. Using birth control lets women plan when and whether to have a family. In fact, 99% of women use birth control at some point in their lives.

Take Action

Stories

Rebecca, 23,

At age 22, I was diagnosed with endometriosis. If I were no longer able to obtain birth control, I don’t know what I would do to control my symptoms.

Laura, 19

I was 18 when I found out. I consistently used condoms with my boyfriend at the time, and less than a year out of high school, I was panicked.

The Problem

Many anti-choice activists oppose birth control just as much as they oppose abortion.

  • They work to block women's access to birth control at pharmacies and hospitals.
  • They lie about birth control to perpetuate a myth that it causes an abortion. Birth control is not abortion.
  • They work to deny women contraceptive coverage.

Our Solution

There are many ways to make sure that women get the birth control they need. Better access means fewer unintended pregnancies.
