Affordable Birth Control!



An unintended effect of the Deficit Reduction Act has caused birth control prices to sky rocket accross college campuses and community health centers. There is an easy fix: Congress needs to pass the Prevention Through Affordable Access Act to close the loop-hole at no additional cost to tax-payers. But when it comes to concerns of young people, and young women in particular, Congress hasn’t always taken the swiftest action. It’s time for young people to get it together and make sure their voices are heard on issues that are important to them.

Follow this link to tell Congress to support the Prevention Through Affordable Access Act!
