Birth Control Saves Lives. Trump Just Made It Harder to Get.
These are just a few of the ways such medical treatments help Americans lead healthy lives
Birth control allows people to plan their pregnancies, resulting in better health for both mother and child. Worldwide, the ability to plan pregnancy is associated with lower infant and maternal mortality, lower mother-to-child transmission of HIV, and fewer abortions, especially unsafe abortions.
Like many necessary medical treatments, birth control helps women work, learn, and lead fulfilling and productive lives. In one survey of patients at family planning clinics, 64 percent said birth control helped them extend their education, 71 percent said it helped them support themselves financially, and 77 percent said it helped them take care of themselves or their families.
