The Benefits of Birth Control in America
Pregnancy planning in general, and the use of birth control in particular, are directly linked to a wide array of benefits to women, men, children, and society, including fewer unplanned pregnancies and abortions, more educational and economic opportunities for young women, improved maternal and infant health, greater family wellbeing, and reduced public spending. The Benefits of Birth Control in America: Getting the Facts Straight discusses those benefits in greater detail, making the case for why publicly-funded contraception is so incredibly important.
