Back Up Your Birth Control Day March 20th!
The Back Up Your Birth Control Campaign is committed to spreading the word about emergency contraception, a safe and effective method of back up birth control.
This year, on Tuesday, March 20, 2007 the sixth annual Back Up Your Birth Control Day of Action, a coalition of more than 100 women’s health and medical organizations will undertake dozens of educational activities nationwide to send an important message to teens: back up your birth control with emergency contraception.
Since the FDA approved OTC sales of EC for adult women, but kept the prescription requirement for teens younger than 18, the Back Up Your Birth Control Campaign understands that promoting knowledge and use of this safe and effective back up birth control method is even more important than ever. That’s why the Back Up Your Birth Control Campaign is using thousands of BUYBC campaign materials to mobilize activists around the country to educate the media and medical community and host Back Up Your Birth Control EC education activities on college campuses, with legislators, and for public health officials.
Please visit www.backupyourbirthcontrol.org and our new teen site www.ineedec.info. EC education Materials are available for order on our website.
