Birth control is not a luxury.

It amazes me how men holding political power know so little about women’s reproductive health. Women deserve more reproductive rights, not fewer.

Birth control is basic health care. Birth control allows women to plan their futures, participate in the economy. For some women with health issues like endometriosis, birth control allows them to get through the day.

I am in favour of paying for birth control for women to access. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to deny anyone access to safe, effective birth control. Birth control is not a luxury. Reproductive health shouldn’t rely on your paycheck. Most plans include Viagra, which is far more “elective” than birth control.

“If you want to stop abortions, vote for the party that is making sure everyone has healthcare, a high school diploma and birth control” – Rachel Madow
