Birth Control

Birth control is about equality for women. Using birth control lets women plan when and whether to have a family. In fact, 98 percent of women use birth control at some point in their lives.

Stories

Danielle, 24

I was lucky enough that my mom was able to set her political and religious beliefs aside in order to protect me from the many struggles that I would have faced caused by failed birth control.

Gina, VA

I hear all the time about the stereotype of what type of girl/woman have abortions. Sleeping around, not using birth control, etc. I am here to tell you that their wrong!

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.

Our Solution

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