Planned Parenthood Federation of America Applauds Senator Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Representative Maloney (D-NY) for Commonsense Bill to Help Ensure Women Have Access to Birth Control
WASHINGTON — Planned Parenthood Federation of America applauds Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) for re-introducing the Access to Birth Control (ABC) Act.
This important legislation protects women’s access to basic, preventive health care and ensures that women will not be denied birth control or emergency contraception at the pharmacy counter.
“We applaud Senator Lautenberg and Representative Maloney for re-introducing this commonsense bill to help ensure women have access to birth control,” said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
“Birth control is basic health care for women. Women should be able to walk into any pharmacy, anywhere in the country, and get birth control, including emergency contraception, without discrimination or delay.”
