November 2017 Thanks, Birth Control: Survey Says

Survey Says: Thanks, Birth Control (November 2017)

Having the power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant and have a child matters. A lot. The ability to plan, prevent and space pregnancies is directly linked to numerous benefits to women, men, children, families, and society, including more educational and economic opportunities and healthier babies. New public opinion polling presented here underscores the continued deep and wide support for birth control. Birth control controversial? Hardly.
