With liberty and reproductive justice for all!

June 2015

There is no better way to celebrate America's Independence Day than by standing up for reproductive freedom! We are excited to share our Independence Day-themed Free the Pill campaign, the latest effort of Free the Pill and the Oral Contraceptives Over-the-Counter Working GroupFree the Pill is a website that provides information and updates about the movement to make a birth control pill available over the counter (OTC) in the United States. In order to provide all women with their choice of accessible birth control, we strive for an OTC pill that is low cost, covered by insurance, and available to women of all ages without a prescription.

We hope you'll join us in advocating for contraceptive access by sharing our images, also available in Spanish-language versions, via Twitter and Facebook. Real choice in reproductive decisions is dependent on access, and moving a birth control pill over the counter will help to expand reproductive freedom beyond the barriers imposed by an unnecessary prescription requirement for the pill.
