Improving access to birth control is at the forefront of our efforts to prevent unintended pregnancy and to give women control over their reproductive health and lives.
For the 98 percent of American women who will use some form of contraception during their lives, birth control is basic, essential healthcare. More than 40 million women of reproductive age are sexually active and want to prevent unintended pregnancy. [Guttmacher Institute, Facts in Brief: Contraceptive Use (Feb. 2005)]
Ensuring that women have access to contraceptive options that meet their health needs is essential to diminishing the significant personal and societal costs of unintended pregnancy and STIs.
