Students Speak Out to Protect Birth Control
Yesterday, our state affiliates worked with students at more than 20 colleges and universities to organize in a campus day of action to stand up for President Obama's policy ensuring that all women can get contraceptive coverage without a copay.
They collected petition signatures in support of birth-control coverage, educated their peers about the ongoing legislative attacks on contraception, and rallied to bring visibility to the issue.
For many of these students, contraception coverage is a personal issue. One in three women struggles with the high cost of birth control at some point in her life--a burden that disproportionately affects younger women. College-aged women stand to save thousands of dollars over their lifetimes because of President Obama's policy.
Don't let anti-contraception extremists take away your access to basic health care. Tell your lawmakers to stand strong against any attacks on birth control!
