Survey Says: #ThxBirthControl (November 2016)

Deciding if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant (or cause a pregnancy) matters. A lot. The ability to plan, prevent, and space pregnancies is directly linked to numerous benefits to women, men, children, 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.
