6th Annual “Thanks, Birth Control” Day

Episode Details

From Nearly 8 in 10 (78%) adults in the United States—including 66% of Republicans and 93% of Democrats—consider birth control to be a basic part of women’s health care, according to a new telephone survey of more than 1,000 adults 18 and older released today by Power to Decide. At the same time, the survey showed that nearly three-quarters (72%) of those 18-29 say they are concerned that women may not be able to access the full range of birth control methods in the future due to changes in the political landscape.

Power to Decide’s survey was conducted in conjunction with the 6th annual Thanks, Birth Control Day, taking place today, Tuesday, Nov. 13.

Birth control makes a lot of amazing stuff possible. Not quite ready for kids? Birth control lets you pursue dreams, goals, travel, school, work, relationships, and more without the risk of pregnancy. It’s not just about sex (although sex is awesome). It’s about living life on your own terms.

We want to hear what birth control has made possible for YOU so mark your calendars for November 13th and celebrate Thanks, Birth Control Day with us (and everyone who is grateful AF for their method).
