Healthcare for women, our rights, and our communities are facing unprecedented attacks.

Despite the fact that birth control is essential health care and the key to women’s economic and social advancement, the Trump administration is hell-bent on getting rid of access to it.

Not on our watch.

Planned Parenthood and supporters are fighting back to ensure that everyone, regardless of income or zip code, has access to birth control. The Trump administration continues to attack access to this basic health care — whether through employer-provided health insurance, federal programs like Title X, or Planned Parenthood health centers — and threaten the decades of progress we’ve made. We will be here to hold this administration accountable and protect basic health care.


How did we get here?

For more than 50 years, birth control has been an essential part of women’s health and lives, and it has made a difference for millions of people. But now in 2017, as unbelievable as it sounds, the Trump administration is determined to flout established science, public opinion, and decades of social and economic progress that birth control has made possible — all to pursue an extreme agenda.


Enough is enough.
We demand birth control for all.

Birth control is not controversial: It’s basic health care that the vast majority of women will use over the course of their lifetime.

Nearly 9 in 10 women of reproductive age will use contraception at some point in their lives, whether it’s for family planning or other medical reasons like treating endometriosis. But before the Affordable Care Act’s birth control provision went into effect, 1 in 3 women struggled to afford prescription birth control.

And it’s no wonder: Without insurance coverage, birth control pills can cost as much as $600 a year, with other methods costing even more. If you know anything about birth control, you know that you can’t play games with your prescription.

The Affordable Care Act helped to ensure that 62.4 million women had access to birth control by guaranteeing that it was covered in all health insurance plans. This was a simple and common-sense policy that required that the plans women pay for include ALL of the health care they need. And thanks to increased access to birth control, the rate of unintended pregnancy is at a 30-year low and the rate of pregnancy among teenagers is at a historic low. But the Trump administration has staffed important government agencies with those who ideologically oppose access to birth control — and that’s having an effect. We’re already seeing direct attacks on this basic health care that millions of people rely on, and we know there are more to come.

Under the Trump administration, too many face the risk of losing access to birth control. To stop this all-out attack, it’s going to take all of us standing up together and demanding that politicians and bosses stop interfering with women’s right to make their personal health care decisions.

Enough is enough. We demand birth control for all.

Birth control IS health care — no matter what the Trump administration thinks or whether your boss agrees with it.

It’s unbelievable we’re still fighting this in 2019.
