2020 Federal Policy Agenda

Stock graphic of a generic publication

When young people have the power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant and have a child, they have the opportunity to pursue the future they want for themselves. This not only benefits young people, but also supports shared goals around workforce readiness, family well-being, and maternal and infant health— and produces significant savings in publicly funded programs. However, not all young people today have this power.

We can build a system of support for young people by providing equitable access to evidence-based sex education, high-quality reproductive health care – including contraception and abortion, and a sense of future opportunity. This agenda summarizes Power to Decide’s federal policy priorities, which broadly fall into three categories: information, access, and opportunity.
