Let’s make birth control affordable again.

Women fought to make birth control legal and now because of the 2006 Deficit Reduction Act it has become unaffordable for many women. Since last year the cost of birth control for college sutdents and women of low-income has more than doubled.  Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) have introduced a bill that will fix that provision in the DRA, the bans discounts on birth control and restore the ability of pharmaceutical companies to offer these discounts.

 Make a difference. Support this bill  by contacting your representitives. It’s easy; click her to write your senator or your representitive.

  2. I had wondered what happened. The prices did double and because of that, I chose to get off of it for almost a year.
    Why do social conservatives want more people on this planet? Other than they’re all sociopaths… why?
