Despite nearly universal support for birth control, more than 19 million women in the US lack access to the full range of contraceptive methods, and policymakers are considering legislation that could make access even more difficult.
So raise your voice! Say, “Thanks, Birth Control!” every chance you get. Help start the conversation with your friends, your community, and decision makers. Here are just a few ways for you to get involved.

It can cost a woman over $500 a year to access birth control. We are here to help. Nearly 20 million women in need of publicly funded contraception live in contraceptive deserts—counties without reasonable access to the full range of birth control—and millions more lack access to health insurance and no- or low-cost birth control. They not only have to deal with the direct costs, but also related costs like unpaid time off work, transportation, and child care. Support BCBenefits and the other high-impact work of Power to Decide today. Remove the barriers a woman faces in accessing the birth control method right for her so that she can live life on her own terms.Donate Today!
