Let’s clear the record, and debunk one of these common (false) lines about birth control access.
Here’s the truth: Nearly ALL American women have used birth control, and giving them affordable access to the health care they need isn’t just good policy; it’s common sense.
Under the Affordable Care Act, every health insurance plan covers women’s birth control with no additional co-pay (just like other forms of preventive health care like cancer screenings and well-woman exams—what’s controversial about that?). It offers important savings, and ensures women are able to use it correctly—neither of which was a reality without this benefit.
No matter which way you spin it, this is basic health care, and a woman’s decisions about it are hers—not her boss’s.
