Planned Parenthood calls for YOU to help protect birth control access in Rhode Island

Contact state representatives before Tuesday

Please, go to http://bit.ly/Fight4BirthControlRI and ask your State Representative and the House Corporations Committee to protect access to birth control in Rhode Island by passing H 7625.

Trump and Congressional Republicans have taken aim at health care—particularly undermining women’s health. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, access to affordable, convenient, and effective contraception has led to significant declines in unintended pregnancies, abortion, and unplanned births.

Rhode Island cannot afford to go backward!

Join us by RSVPing to the hearing on H 7625.

Tuesday, April 24
4:30 pm
House Committee on Corportations, room 203
State House, 82 Smith Street, Providence
  • Ø  Protect the current $0 cost-sharing for contraception by preserving in RI law the provision of Affordable Care Act (ACA) that says birth control is a preventive health care service.
  • Ø  Allow prescribing and dispensing of birth control up to a full year at a time.
  • Ø  Ensure affordability and accessibility of the most effective forms of contraception, including long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) option such as IUDs and implants.
Let's keep Rhode Island up-to-date with other states that have already passed similar laws, including Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine and New York. 

The Trump-Pence administration and Congressional Republicans have ended the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program, made it easier for employers to opt-out of providing birth control coverage, and proposed radical changes to the Title X program.

We must act now to protect access to birth control in Rhode Island against the attacks and policies from Washington D.C. 

Ask your State Representative and the House Corporations Committee to protect access to birth control in Rhode Island. Add your name >> http://bit.ly/Fight4BirthControlRI
