“Today’s Supreme Court ruling sets a dangerous precedent by allowing employers and universities to deny coverage for essential health care. People of color and young people benefit most from guaranteed birth control coverage under the Affordable Care Act, and this ruling recklessly opens the door for institutions to harm or discriminate against people during a public health crisis that continues to ravage our communities.
This is not what the American people want — the vast majority want to keep access to birth control and control their own bodies. Instead, this is yet another oppressive tactic that reinforces white supremacy, restricts reproductive freedom, and interferes with personal health care decisions.
It is clear that in 2020, access to all sexual and reproductive health care is still at risk. But the fight is far from over. Planned Parenthood South Atlantic remains committed to fighting for and providing affordable birth control to our patients, no matter who they work for, where they go to school, or their health insurance status."
