Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price, a longtime opponent of women's health, now has the power to singlehandedly attack access to birth control. Any day now, Secretary Price could start to dismantle President Obama’s highly popular provision that provides no-copay insurance coverage of critical health services like birth control, reports indicate.

 

Tell Secretary of Human and Health Services Tom Price that we demand access to birth control.

 

If Secretary Price dismantles this provision, he is ignoring the important role birth control plays in millions of lives. Birth control allows women to control their reproductive decisions, and people also use birth control for a host of medical conditions like endometriosis, migraines, premenstrual pain, and menstrual regulation.

Just consider these statistics:

  • 99% of sexually active women use birth control at some point in their lives.  

  • 55 million women have benefitted from the birth control provision since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) went into effect.

  • Women have saved an estimated $1.4 billion per year in out of pocket costs since the ACA went into effect.

  • Individual women have saved hundreds of dollars each year, on average, because they’re able to access the birth control that works for them. (In fact, you might even be one of those women!)

Birth control is critical for millions, and we refuse to stand by as Secretary Price plays politics with women’s health.

 

Take Action

It is absurd to think that in 2017, we are battling for birth control the way feminists fought a hundred years ago.  Take a moment to get over your shock that this is our actual reality, and then – it’s time for us all to speak out in huge numbers.

Demand that Secretary Price protect birth control access for people around the country.
