Accessing birth control should be easy, affordable and fair.
World Contraception Day
Celebrated on September 26th every year, this day is dedicated to improving awareness of the role contraception plays in enabling people to make informed choices about their sexual and reproductive health. This conversation matters now more than ever.
Just last year SCOTUS ruled that employers could use “religious or moral objectives” to opt out of providing contraceptive coverage to employees.
Racial discrimination continues to influence contraception access. In a survey of Black women, 28% reported they had been encouraged to use one form of birth control when they preferred another.
Contraception is about more than preventing pregnancy. In fact, many people look to birth control to manage conditions like endometriosis, hormonal acne, migraines and more.
