Birth control should be your personal decision — not your boss’s or the president’s.

That’s why supporters have taken to social media to send a message to the White House: Stop attacking access to birth control. Check out just a few of the reasons why women (and men!) are resisting the Trump administration’s efforts to roll back the clock on women’s basic health care:
