The morning after...

Yesterday was Back Up Your Birth Control Day... a campaign dedicated to spreading the word about emergency contraception (EC), the safe and effective method of backing up your birth control. More than a hundred women’s health and medical organizations, students, and individuals organized across the nation for the seventh annual Back Up Your Birth Control Day of Action.

While the FDA decision that made EC available over-the-counter to women 18 and older was a victory, the high cost of EC over-the-counter, usually between $40-60 in pharmacies nationwide, is a continuing barrier to some women accessing EC.
