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.

Tell Congress: Help Women in The Military Get the Birth Control They Need

More women are on active duty in the military than ever before, and they’re being deployed in challenging regions where it’s critical they get the health care they need to do their jobs. It’s time we as a country address this problem and make sure we improve access for these courageous women serving our country.

Urge Your Members of Congress to Cosponsor the Women's Health Protection Act

The Women's Health Protection Act puts a stop to restrictions and obstacles that prevent women from getting the care they need and deserve. Tell your members of Congress to support it!

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.
