NWLC Applauds the Reintroduction of the Access to Birth Control Act

The following is a statement by Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC):

There’s no question we need proactive legislation at a time when the Trump-Pence Administration continues to attack our access to health care. The Access to Birth Control Act, introduced by Sen. Cory Booker and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, is brave legislation that prioritizes patients’ health and ensures women can access the birth control they need. No patient should ever be denied care based on the personal – not medical – beliefs of their pharmacist. Family planning is central to good health care, and we’ll continue to support legislation that boldly recognizes that.
