Federal Policy

Power to Decide, the campaign to prevent unplanned pregnancy, works to identify, develop, and promote a variety of federal policy options that ensure that young people have the power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to become pregnant and have a child. This section contains resources on federal funding for evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention education, contraceptive access, and related issues, such as poverty and education. These policies can increase the opportunity that young people have to pursue the future that they want for themselves.

Providing an environment where young people have the power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant and have a child not only benefits the young people themselves, but also leads to significant savings in publicly funded programs.
